Main School

King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Girls aims to provide a full range of quality experiences, within a forward thinking and supportive environment. 


King Edward VI Camp Hill School is a very special place, with a long track record in providing an academically challenging and creative education. Students from all backgrounds thrive here and are encouraged not only to develop their own talents but also to learn the importance of contributing both to the school and wider community.


Part of King Edward VI Academy Trust, Camp Hill School for Girls is an 11 - 18 selective girls grammar. Entry is by examination and there are no fees. Students come to the school from all parts of Birmingham and from adjacent areas. Since 2014 all of the King Edward VI Grammar Schools have expanded, with the intention of improving the life chances of some of the children from less privileged backgrounds, seeing the charity return to some of its original purpose from as long ago as 1552.


Education at the school is focused on a curriculum which simultaneously offers breadth, depth, balance and challenge. Students are also encouraged to participate fully in the school’s rich extracurricular life with its myriad opportunities for academic, cultural and social enrichment.


The success of the school and its students speaks for itself. Judged by OFSTED to be Outstanding, King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Girls consistently achieves top positions in national Performance Tables. A learning environment is created where students are given the opportunity to achieve the highest possible standards in all areas of school life, in the belief that this will lead to the full development of individual potential. They are encouraged to acquire the understanding, knowledge, skills, qualifications and interests that will help them to find fulfilment in their future lives and careers.


The school occupies an attractive, extensive, landscaped site on the former estate of the Cartland family in Kings Heath which it shares with King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Boys. The schools are separate but share some facilities and have curriculum, music, drama, and social links. Accordingly, the school benefits from excellent facilities, many of which have been built or refurbished in recent years, including the locker area, the school Dining Room, a Geography and Science hub and a STEM block which includes further specialist Science Labs. During the summer of 2018 we completed work to extend the Sixth Form facilities to include additional study space and dining facilities and a new Music Centre was completed in the summer of 2020. The school also boasts an indoor swimming pool, Art and Graphic Design suites which provide specialist classrooms and exciting modern environments for budding artists, designers and engineers. A large Sports Hall is shared with Camp Hill School for Boys, which includes classrooms, a fitness room and a dance studio.
