About Humphrey Perkins School
Humphrey Perkins School, an 11-16 academy in Barrow upon Soar, is on a journey. Following our Special Measures judgement in June 2017, much work has already been undertaken to improve the school and to raise standards, including a new Governing body and joining outstanding multi-academy trust, the Lionheart Academies Trust, led by Beauchamp College in Oadby, a nationally recognised outstanding school, in October 2018. We now are looking to strengthen our Humphrey Perkins team through recruiting outstanding members of staff, who share our belief that every child deserves the very best standard of education.
We are a warm and friendly village school of approximately 800 students, taking students from our local and surrounding villages and are fortunate to have excellent parental support. Many of our students enter the school with high prior attainment and they are very aspirational and are courteous, polite and respectful.
Staff and students enjoy the benefits of being based on a large site, with lovely open green spaces and set within a safe and vibrant village setting, with excellent transport links to larger towns and cities within the East Midlands.
We believe in supporting and developing colleagues to achieve excellence and allow them to pursue their professional goals. We are a forward thinking school and value staff wellbeing. At Humphrey Perkins we are committed to improving and aspire to excellence amongst our students and our staff.
