“Old Penwithians” is an association of former pupils and members of staff who, at any time in its 70-year history, attended the Penzance County School for boys, which became first the Penzance Grammar School for boys and then the Humphry Davy Grammar School.
It aims to provide a link where old boys can keep in touch with each other and maintains a database of names and addresses. An annual reunion is held at the Queen’s Hotel, Penzance, on the 29th of December each year and there are also occasional year group reunions and pub meetings throughout the year.
Members of the association also receive an annual newsletter entitled New Penwithian. A single subscription of just £10.00 secures life membership. See the "Database" page for details.
As well as producing its annual newsletter, the association has updated and reprinted the book Three Score Years and Ten, the history of the school first published in 1980. It has also commissioned an association tie.
Our online gallery gives access to a large collection of old photographs, mostly class and team photographs, to which we are slowly adding names. We hope, with your help, that our collection will continue to grow.
