Humphry Davy School14 Oct 2020Here @ HDS we are very excited to read about the launch of Cornwall Council's Manifesto which sets out how it wants to make Cornwall the UK's leading rural creative economy; shining a light on the creative economies of our rural region.
As a community school in the heart of Penzance, we are proud to be involved in many community festivals and activities throughout the year, with the highlight of the year being 'Golowan'! The Manifesto, which sets out plans to provide more support for businesses in the creative and digital industries, also highlights a Creative Cluster planned in Penzance, Truro and Liskeard.
We watch with interest as the plans go before the Cornwall Council's economic growth and development overview and scrutiny committee when it meets on Tuesday (Oct13), and we look forward to the boost this may provide for our local economy, as well as the opportunities for us to expand our 'creativity in the community' over the coming years!

Humphry Davy School23 Jul 2020Year 11, Class of 2020. You made such an impact on us all and inspired us with your resilience, drive and determination. A hugely memorable year group, whose year was brought to an abrupt end with the arrival of Covid-19 and lockdown. We want to end this year with a video to capture some heartfelt message from the staff against the backdrop of the school you have spent the last 5 years.
Humphry Davy School16 Jul 2020Our music team have been working hard again creating another fantastic virtual ensemble! In support of the Cornwall Music Service Trust, our extremely talented musical students (both past and present) have put together this brilliant musical collaboration for us all to enjoy. Another polished piece from our 'New Notes Jazz Band' who continue to inspire us with their talents. This year has certainly been one that we will all remember and what better way to bring this school year to a close than to spread the joy of music. Well done everyone, another incredible production; produced right from your very own homes!

Humphry Davy School1 Jul 2020At HDS we place a genuine focus on students' wellbeing alongside their academic progress. All students follow our detailed Citizenship and Personal Development Curriculum which includes lessons on physical and emotional wellbeing, being safe, developing positive relationships and strong personal qualities, careers and being happy. During lockdown we have continued to support our students in these ways setting work and providing regular wellbeing tasks. In June we used the Action for Happiness 'Joyful June' calendar, encouraging students to complete daily actions to look for what's good, even in difficult times, embracing and spreading happiness. Our video shares some of the wonderful things our students got up to in June 2020. In July our students will complete the 'Jump Back July 2020' calendar with daily actions to help them be more resilient in challenging times.
Humphry Davy School1 Jul 2020We really hope you enjoyed celebrating our 'virtual Mazey Day' with us! We had a lot of fun, and we really can't wait until next year when, hopefully, we'll all be able to celebrate in traditional Golowan style.
Our 'Mazey Day friend', ET, hasn't 'phoned home' just yet and has extended his stay with us at the school for another week. He's been exploring the school site and, whilst he brought a smile to the faces of everyone he met around the site, we're not sure that our school cat was all that pleased to see him! #ETstrikesagain
Humphry Davy School27 Jun 2020Today would have been Mazey Day in Penzance. A day full of celebration, music, dancing, and parades!...a day which Humphry Davy School very much looks forward to every year!
This year’s festival theme is ‘Golowan Gets Connected’ in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the first telegraph cable landing on the beach at Porthcurno. The theme certainly couldn’t have been more appropriate for this year and what an amazing job our brilliant students have done.
In years gone by, our students would have been busy practising their musical performances, and putting the finishing touches to our Mazey Day Structures during lessons and after school…we haven’t let ‘lock down’ stop us! Our students and staff have been creating their own themed masterpieces at home. Withy structures, drawings, paintings and cakes were all crafted, photographed and filmed…and we have brought everything together to celebrate with our community #Golowanonline#theshowmustgoon#mazeydayonline

Humphry Davy School24 Jun 2020This week, Humphry Davy School is joining the Penzance community online to celebrate the annual Golowan Festival. At a time when our students would traditionally have been performing music live at the Humphry Davy Statue on Mazey Day, our talented ‘Band of Fiasco’ decided not to let the current circumstances dampen their Golowan spirit!
Along with our fantastic music department, the band practised the well-known song ‘Come Together’ by The Beatles and created their very own music video straight from their own homes!
This year’s festival theme is ‘Golowan Gets Connected’ in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the first telegraph cable landing on the beach at Porthcurno. The theme certainly couldn’t have been more appropriate for this year and what an amazing job our brilliant students have done. We're sure you'll agree that our future musician stars have created a polished piece which is truly a fantastic production, well done to all involved!
Make sure to check out our website this weekend for more, exciting, Mazey Day fun!
