About Humphrey Perkins School
Humphrey Perkins School, an 11-16 academy in Barrow upon Soar, is a gem nestling in the countryside. We are proud to be part of an outstanding multi-academy trust, the Lionheart Academies Trust, led by Beauchamp College in Oadby, a nationally recognised Outstanding school. In March 2020, just prior to Lockdown, we were judged to be a ‘Good’ Provider by Ofsted and, in November 2020, we were very proud to be declared “Leicestershire Live’s School of the Year”. We now are looking to build upon our fantastic 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 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.
