Life at Humphrey’s is as busy and exciting as ever!

There have been a huge variety of visiting speakers in school this term so far, including Christian Hewgill (BBC Radio 1) who came to speak to our Media and Music students about how to pursue a career in media and creative arts. Students were entertained by his anecdotes and inspired to consider different careers that they hadn’t previously thought about. One of our Year 9’s said: “It was inspiring to talk to somebody who used to go to the school who has moved away and achieved something on a national level”.

Our students are incredibly proud to be inviting members of the public to our annual show. This year they are performing the popular ‘School of Rock’ from 12-14th February 2020. We look forward to welcoming you all to celebrate our students’ hard work on-stage and behind the scenes.
We held an Anti-Bullying Week (11th November) with a wide variety of events. Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors are hard at work putting plans into action following a number of strategy meetings. The national commitment to stamp out bullying in schools is mirrored by the work that our staff have done to achieve the Carnegie Silver Award for supporting the mental health of all members of our school community.
You will have noticed that we are having a lot of building and renovation work done at school to make our buildings and learning environments as beautiful as they can be. Most of the work should be completed towards the end of the autumn term. You can keep up to date with our students’ achievements and the day-to-day events on our social media pages:
