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!

Humphry Davy School 23 Jul 2020 Year 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 School 16 Jul 2020 Our 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!
