Humphrey Perkins School

A very warm welcome to Humphrey Perkins School. The successes of our students and the school as a whole are the result of a relentless focus on high standards of academic and personal achievement, positive attitudes towards learning and exemplary behaviour. We make sure the learning environment is well-ordered so that all students can feel safe and enjoy learning. Our students are the best ambassadors for the school - they are positive, lively and courteous and interact well with one another and with staff both in and out of the classroom.

Equality Objectives

Whatever the nature of the local community, students are growing up in a wider multicultural and multiracial society where they are subject to various attitudes towards minority groups, and also certain images of these groups portrayed by the media.

“I’ve been really lucky to attend school trips and residentials during my time at Humphrey Perkins. We are encouraged to take part in student leadership opportunities during every year at Humphrey Perkins and I am proud to be a Prefect.”
