Humphry Davy School 17 Dec 2020 Merry Christmas everyone! We hope you have a wonderful break and we look forward to seeing all your smiling faces on Monday 4th January! Stay safe.
Humphry Davy School 17 Dec 2020 HDS is well known for always putting on fantastic festive performances for friends and family. This year, being unable to perform in the usual way, our musical students were still keen to spread some festive cheer to everyone this Christmas. With their fantastic ‘lockdown’ videos in mind they knew that, with the help of their music teachers, they would be able to put together a selection of musical ensembles to get everyone into the Christmas spirit. How amazing are these two videos from our brilliant music scholars and the Band of Fiasco?! Well done everyone, you have blown us away with your talents yet again.
Humphry Davy School 17 Dec 2020 Our music scholars cover 'In the Bleak Midwinter'.
Humphry Davy School 17 Dec 2020 On Friday 11th December, Year 7 students gathered on our astro pitch to complete a 2.5K run to show their support for this year’s ‘Santas on the Run – Goes Freestyle!’ in order to raise money for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW). The charity’s festive fundraiser usually sees hundreds of Santas running around Eden to raise vital funds. This year, due to the pandemic, the event took place virtually. Over the weekend, supporters were encouraged to choose their own route, distance and festive attire making ‘Santas on the Run - Goes Freestyle’ something everyone could get involved in. The HDS community raised an incredible £1180 through the donations and sponsorship money collected! Thank you everyone for your generosity, the hospice holds a special place in the hearts of all HDS staff and it was brilliant to see how many of our students got involved.
Humphry Davy School 9 Dec 2020 Our amazing music students have been working very hard all day creating their very own music video! We can’t wait to hear the final outcome. Keep your eyes peeled for this fabulous festive treat!
Humphry Davy School 4 Dec 2020 We’re getting festive! HDS is currently taking part in the Penzance Christmas Window Competition. This year’s theme is ‘Christmas Songs’ so, during tutor time last Friday, our Year 7 students were challenged with producing a drawing of one of the ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’. The drawings were then transformed into festive decorations which have been creatively displayed for all to see! Our window is in Steckfensters (on Chapel Street) and is certainly shining bright. Well done Year 7 for your fantastic creations, you have such an imagination and we loved working with drawings! Don’t forget to vote for our school to win by scanning the QR code or visiting https://lovepenzance.co.uk/christmas-window-comp/

Humphry Davy School 11 Nov 2020 Following a short service in the School Gallery, a wreath was laid by a small group of students at our war memorials. Then, with the Last Post (played by three of our music students) echoing around our school grounds for all to hear, we remembered. We remembered then and reflected on now; remembering the service and sacrifice made by so many peoples, communities and nations 75 years ago, and reflecting on the service and sacrifice of so many today.

Humphry Davy School 19 Oct 2020 Congratulations to Thea on being a winner of the The Bright Ideas Challenge 2020! The challenge was to come up with a 'Bright Idea' to solve an energy problem faced by a city in 2050. Thea's entry was both innovative and exciting...we are very proud of you Thea! As the regional winner, Thea has won £2,500 to boost our already extensive STEM offer here at HDS. In addition, Thea has received an amazing STEM goodie bag packed with cool STEM kit and subscriptions. Well done!
Humphry Davy School 14 Oct 2020 We loved welcoming you all!
Humphry Davy School 14 Oct 2020 Here @ 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!
