Humphry Davy School24 Nov 2021A huge ‘Well Done’ to our Rugby and Netball teams who played against Hayle Academy last week. The opposing teams were great competition and everyone had a great time getting truly stuck in. All students showed determination, changing up their usual routines to further enhance their understanding of different player positions. The students were a credit to our school and showed real sportsmanship. Nice work everyone! Keep it up!

Humphry Davy School23 Nov 2021Mrs Hall and Mr McHugh's chemistry class really used their imaginations whilst learning about the history of the atom this week! Having conducted some initial research they created presentations to teach each other about how ideas about the structure of the atom have changed over time as new evidence becomes available, including some ingenious ideas such as reproducing Rutherford's Alpha Particle experiment with marbles and mesh, 3d software to model the planetary model (in which students were invited to spot the deliberate mistake!) and decorated cookies illustrating the plum pudding model! The use of an avocado to model the nuclear model was particularly ingenious! Congratulations Year 9 set 2 for some great teamwork!

Humphry Davy School18 Nov 2021Cornish Pirates Rugby player, Nicolas De Battista, visited our Year 9 Spanish class this term. He spoke to us about his life in Argentina before moving to the UK to play rugby. The students had the opportunity to ask him lots of questions about his exciting life. He has been lucky to travel to many different countries with his rugby career and it was inspiring for the students to see how much learning different languages has helped him pursue his dreams! Thank you for visiting us, we look forward to welcoming you back in the future!
Humphry Davy School16 Nov 2021The HDS community came together yesterday to wear Odd Socks to mark the start of Anti-Bullying Week.

Odd Socks day is to help raise awareness of bullying and standing together - in a fun and unified way.
This year over 5 million children, 1,000s of parents, 100s of workplaces and lots of celebrities and influencers got involved. From Ant and Dec, Emma Willis, Craig David, Sir Mo Farah, Annamarie to Humphry Davy School!
Well done everyone!
Humphry Davy School15 Nov 2021Staff and senior students from Humphry Davy School gathered on Sunday 14th November in remembrance of all those who gave their lives at war.
Rain and Lily were superb ambassadors for the school; supporting the parade through the town and laying a wreath on behalf of our school community.
There were also many of our students brilliantly representing their various uniformed organisations or playing superbly in the band.
It was a poignant remembrance parade and service, much of which was delivered in the Cornish Language.
We will remember them.
Humphry Davy School11 Nov 2021Our school community fell silent at 11am this morning to remember those who have lost their lives in conflict, those who have served and their families.
The two minute silence was impeccably observed across the school, and with the Last Post echoing around our school grounds for all to hear, we remembered.

Humphry Davy School5 Nov 2021This week students have been using their mentor time to think about the COP-26 conference which is taking place in Glasgow. For almost three decades, world governments have met nearly every year to forge a global response to the climate emergency. Our students have spent their time watching videos which have sparked several in depth conversations within their mentor groups. It is always really interesting to hear our young people discuss such pressing subjects and their passion for our planet always shines through.
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.
