Humphry Davy School11 Jun 2021On Thursday 27th May, just before half term, Year 11 students were treated to a final rewards trip down on the beach! Student Aoife told us, “It's been an emotional few day leaving HDS and this surfing trip was an amazing way to finish off our journey. It was fantastically fun to make some final memories with our peers and teachers; with some great nose dives and wipe-outs along the way!” We are so lucky to live where we do and we love making the most of what our beautiful county has to offer! We would like to wish all our Year 11’s the very best of luck with their future and look forward to seeing you all very soon.

Humphry Davy School28 May 2021This term HDS students have been adventuring in our stunning Cornish landscape as part of their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. Although the expeditions could not take place in their usual way due to national restrictions, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a valuable (and life- changing) experience for many of our students, and we did not want them to miss out! Check out our video to see how much fun they had!
Humphry Davy School27 May 2021Student activists and ‘Plastic Free HDS’ supporters, Ida and Lily, talk with local MP and the UK Environment Minister, George Eustice, to challenge what he is doing to tackle climate change and his thoughts about the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill. Growing up in Cornwall both our students are extremely passionate about the beautiful environment we all call home. In their fifteen and sixteen years of living they have seen first-hand the devastating effects of climate change and have made it their mission to raise awareness around the issue. A short video has been created on some of the key points of their discussion with Mr Eustice, forming an interesting watch for all, be sure to check it out.
Humphry Davy School25 May 2021We pride ourselves on creating 'a sense of belonging' at Humphry Davy and even as our Year 11 students embark upon the next steps in their educational journey, we are supporting them all of the way. A reminder here to check into Satchel:One every day in June to access a pick and mix menu of post 16 materials connected to careers and to aid preparation for college/apprenticeships etc and to access Mrs Richard's summary of college and apprenticeship opportunities.
'Come and See Open Events' have just been advertised for Year 11 students who may want to look around Truro, Penwith and Callywith Colleges prior to September 2021. Dates are: Penwith College - 24 June | Callywith College - 3 July | Truro College - 7 July
Humphry Davy School20 May 2021Congratulations to everyone who took part in the first Penwith Mixed Football Tournament yesterday!

The team won all of the games they played throughout the tournament and claimed first place! Well done team, what an achievement!
Humphry Davy School14 May 2021Today we joined Pirate FM in raising money as part of their first Cash for Kids Day! This past year has certainly been difficult for everyone, but there are many families living in Cornwall who have reached crisis point and are in need of assistance; all funds raised today will go towards assisting those in the most need. Thank you to everyone who donated money to this well deserving cause!
Humphry Davy School12 May 2021Huge congratulations to HDS Alumni, James! Whilst at school James always displayed a real flare and passion for catering and it was clear that he would go on to do amazing things. He gained the title of ‘Future Chef Champion’ whilst at HDS, impressing the judges with his tasty dish. This month James took part in the national competition, ‘Master Chefs of Great Britain’ for Sustainable Seafood. With strong competition from coast to coast – Scotland to Cornwall – from professional to novice cooks, James was crowned the winner! What a fantastic achievement, you should be so proud! James continues to study catering at Penwith College and will be joining some of our Year 9 classes later this year for some seafood related workshops!
We love keeping in touch with ex-students and hearing of their fantastic achievements. If you are a HDS leaver be sure to sign up to our alumni association and stay in touch!
Humphry Davy School27 Apr 2021There is an amazing opportunity with NCS this summer!

We would like to highlight what an amazing opportunity this is – students will gain invaluable life skills, get to make a difference in the community, have fun and meet new people.
