New stretch target

Every pound donated over and above our initial target will be invested in providing increased laptop and digital access for our local community; improving educational outcomes and investing in our future.  

During these difficult times, Humphry Davy School is even more determined to ensure that we do all we can to provide the highest possible quality educational experiences during the ‘lockdown period’ and celebrate all the successes of our students, however big or small. We are very grateful for the dedicated and creative talents of our fantastic staff team and the superb commitment of our amazing parents and carers, who combine to support the development of the musical, artistic, sporting, vocational and academic talents of our students whilst ensuring continuity of learning. The biggest barrier though remains the limited access to digital devices experienced by significant numbers in our local community.

Working together and creating a sense of belonging to our community has long been at the heart of our success and the school has a long-standing well-deserved reputation for its caring approach and ensuring no child is left behind. These values are well embedded across the Penzance community and it has been uplifting to receive emails and calls from past and present students and families offering financial support for those whose learning is being interrupted yet again through no fault of their own.

Humphry Davy School has been fortunate to be able to provide over 125 laptops for local families through the DfE backed scheme, for which we are very grateful. However, we are very aware there are many more students whose access is limited, through no fault of their own, for all sorts of reasons including sharing the one laptop between 2 or 3 siblings during the school day, or are reliant on a ‘smart’ mobile phone.

We are therefore launching this CrowdFunding campaign to pool your kind donations to effectively help and support families in need. Our target is to raise funds towards increased laptop access and improving the educational outcomes of our local community. 

If you can donate just a small sum, we can smash the target and invest in our future.
