We could not be more proud of how well our incredible students and staff have coped during these unprecedented times.
Humphry Davy School26 Oct 2021Year 7 students have been busy this term practising for our annual Year 7 Performance.
The students worked tirelessly, singing take after take for the camera (ensuring plenty of great camera angles). They also experienced our recording studio for the first time and, we’re sure you’ll agree, they have put together a spectacular music video for you!
This was a great experience for our students and gave them a taste of what creating a music video is really like.

Humphry Davy School14 Oct 2021Dear Parents and Carers,
My thanks to the fantastic staff team here at Humphry Davy for the swift response following the public demonstration held outside the main gate at the end of the school day.
As ever our primary focus is the safety, health and welfare of the students and their safe departure from the school to travel home, and some quick changes to our routines ensured the safety of all involved. My apologies to anyone who experienced any disruption and my thanks to parents and the community for their support in quickly dispersing the traffic.
As expressed in my weekly letters, I appreciate that the Covid-19 vaccine is a polarising issue and I will write to all parents to update them on arrangements in coming days.
Thank you for your support.

Thank you in advance! We can’t wait to get growing!
