Message from the Principals

We are delighted to welcome you to our website and to our school. Humphrey Perkins is a hidden gem: nestling in beautiful Leicestershire countryside and steeped in many traditions. Our school was founded in 1717 as a ‘Free Grammar School’ and we embrace our history whilst always striving to provide our students with a modern, forward thinking education. Our aim is to offer a perfect balance of exciting teaching and learning with a wide range of support for our students combined with exciting prospects beyond the classroom. We offer an extensive vibrant curriculum and our students have a wealth of opportunities from which to choose.

Humphrey Perkins School is part of the Lionheart Trust which is led by Beauchamp College, a Leicestershire college with an outstanding reputation. The Trust’s core values of striving for Academic Excellence whilst relentlessly focussing on the Holistic Development of each student are at the heart of our vision for Humphrey Perkins. The Lionheart Trust also provides extensive support for us as we continue our quest towards excellence: we aim for every student to feel intellectually inspired, well-cared for and challenged.

If you would like to see our school in action, visit our well-stocked library approached through Hogwarts-style corridors, marvel at our expanse of land so perfect for sporting fixtures or just see our students working hard, please do contact us.
