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. The school’s Equality Objectives should be read in conjunction with the wider school policies.
Good schools go beyond a commitment to academic excellence; they aim to educate the whole person through holistic development and extra-curricular endeavours. At Humphrey Perkins School we endorse that aim in the knowledge that if we provide a good quality and exciting academic education, taking a close interest in each individual with the highest standard of teaching, we will produce well-rounded students; able and eager to fulfill their potential in all aspects of life.
We believe that all young people will respond to challenge as long as that challenge is relevant to their individual needs and aspirations. So we have developed a curriculum that meets the needs, sparks the imagination, and brings the best out of each individual student according to his or her ambition, aspirations, ability, interests and learning styles.
We aim to stimulate, motivate and cultivate intellectual curiosity, develop our students awareness and understanding as well as leadership and communication skills. We want all our students to be good citizens as well as good companions and to have fun! We encourage and expect high standards of behaviour and presentation and nurture strong character values.
There is a focused commitment on 'Teaching and Learning' and we are proud of what we do. There is an emphasis on mutual support through which we develop our shared professionalism. We are reflective and adaptive in our practice. We are happy to try out new ideas, because we want to ensure that every student succeeds.
Celebrating genuine success is an important aspect of building self confidence and developing a sense of pride and ambition. There are many ways in which we highlight achievement, from HP Award badges in assembly to photos around the site. All students are expected to celebrate the success of others.
Due to the current situation, we thought it appropriate to take a blended approach to our Open Evening. Although we WILL be hosting an Open Evening on site, this will be limited to a Senior Leadership Presentation to adhere to government guidelines. Furthermore, information specific to our school will be provided online as part of an ‘Online Experience’.
To secure your place at our Open Evening Presentation, you must now book on to a time specific slot. You will be grouped in small numbers, and met by our Senior Leadership Team. You will still get to meet some key members of staff and learn about our school. Please note, we can only host one adult and one child per household. You must wear a face covering unless you suffer from a medical condition which means that you cannot.
If you have accessibility requirements, please state upon booking. We want to ensure that everyone can access our Senior Leadership Presentation.
You can only attend our Presentation on Thursday 24th September if you have booked a ticket using the button below.
