It was lovely to see our new Year 7s having so much fun! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
Have a great summer everyone...and see you in September!
Humphry Davy School20 Jul 2022This year’s summer production was a compilation of three classic ‘Grimms’ Tales’, Little Red Cap, Hansel and Gretel and Rumplestiltskin. Our students were gifted with beautiful sunshine meaning their play could go ahead on the field as planned.
It was fantastic to see the students in their element as they showed off the fantastic play they have been rehearsing tirelessly. The dedication, time, effort and talents of our young people really shone through, enabling us to bring this show to life, a huge ‘well done’ to everyone involved!
Humphry Davy School19 Jul 2022Activities Week last week was a great success and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! Here is a great video showing some of the awesome things our students and staff got up to in the sunshine!
Humphry Davy School15 Jul 2022What a jam packed Activities Week we’ve had! Our students have had lots of fun out and about in the brilliant sunshine…. experiencing new adventures, making new friends, developing confidence, and making memories.
Here’s just a few of the many many photos we’ve taken. We’ll be posting more photos and a video next week on our website, and be sure to check out our newsletter at the end of term to see lots more….
After such a busy and active week, we hope everyone has a restful weekend, and we’ll see you all on Monday!
Humphry Davy School12 Jul 2022Activities week is in full flow and we are having so much fun already! With so many exciting experiences on offer, our students have certainly been getting stuck in…and it’s great to see so many smiling faces! Here’s a snapshot of some of the fun so far. We will be uploading more photos to our website throughout the week so be sure to keep an eye on our news story here: https://www.humphry-davy.cornwall.sch.uk/2331/news/post/1194/activities-week-2022
Humphry Davy School11 Jul 2022It was amazing to see the whole school get involved in our annual Sports Day this year!
The sun was shining, and the atmosphere was fantastic, as everyone gathered on the sports field for the track and field events!
Well done to all involved….what a brilliant day!
Humphry Davy School5 Jul 2022The HDS ‘Class of 2022’ gathered at Tregenna Castle last week, where they celebrated in style with an ‘under the sea’ theme to mark the completion of their five years of secondary education with us.
Despite the weather, with the clouds deciding to open up just as our graduates began arriving, everyone had a smile on their face as they showed off their beautiful dresses and smartest suits, ready to enjoy a night of fine dining and fun.
We wish you all the best of luck with your future endeavours and couldn’t be prouder of the young adults you have become. We look forward to seeing you again on Thursday 25th August for Results Day.

Humphry Davy School4 Jul 2022Humphry Davy School's choir had a fantastic time performing at the Minack Theatre last week in the Cornwall School's production of 'One Small Bird' - a song cycle inspired by the RSPB’s 2014 discovery of the migratory route of one of Britain’s rarest birds, the red-necked phalarope.
The Red-necked Phalarope is a tiny creature. Weighing no more than a packet of crisps, it successfully crosses the Atlantic between Shetland and Peru every year, passing through environments as diverse and challenging as the icy regions of the north and the storms of the Caribbean.
This little bird’s journey tells an inspiring story about strength and resilience in the face of harsh conditions, and of the unstoppable drive for survival among earth’s creatures.
One Small Bird has been performed by young people and community groups across Britain and we are thrilled have been a part of this production.
Humphry Davy School4 Jul 2022Last week, HDS students competed in the Cornwall School Team Showjumping Competition and we were delighted when Rosie (year 9) and Mr Pickles won the individual 60-65 cm class against 40 other competitors.
Rosie did exceptionally well, showing great determination having nearly stopped jumping altogether after a bad fall two years ago. Florence (year 7) on Skye also jumped a clear round.
Nina and Kacey (both year 9) also made a great effort but, with Kacey's horse Jasper spooked by the wind and rain, and Nina riding a friends horse Otis, which she had only jumped twice before, they were unfortunately eliminated.
All four girls had fun despite the horrendous weather and it was great to see them out competing with the support of their family and friends.
Well done girls!
Humphry Davy School1 Jul 2022On Wednesday our students took part in Sports Day! We were so lucky with the weather and everyone had a great day taking part in the various sporting events we had running across the school site. Well done to everyone for taking part, here’s a shot from the day!
