Head's Welcome

Welcome to King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Girls.

We are a forward-thinking, selective state grammar school with academy status. We belong to the King Edward VI Foundation of schools and Multi Academy Trust, and are extremely proud of our rich history and traditions.

We received Outstanding judgments in all areas of our recent Ofsted Inspection report in November 2021. The opening paragraph of the report reads:

King Edward Camp Hill School for Girls is an inspirational place to be. Pupils are happy here. They flourish at this exceptional school

Aside from our desire for our students to excel academically at Camp Hill Girls, we place great importance on their happiness and the development of them as individuals. By providing a full range of quality experiences both in and outside of the classroom, our students develop confidence, resilience and learn to make healthy choices - all of which helps to prepare them for life beyond school.

Our challenging, well-structured curriculum is designed with able students in mind, and encourages them to develop their intellectual curiosity and use higher level thinking skills. We want students to question us, and they do! We are extremely proud of the breadth of our curriculum at all Key Stages, and believe it offers students genuine choice. Whilst Maths, Biology and Chemistry are very popular subjects at A Level, we are extremely proud of our thriving Arts, Languages and Humanities subjects which are also popular choices for our students. Our extra and supra-curricular offerings are wide and varied, and cater to all manner of tastes. Our school House System is weaved through all aspects of school life, and is just one example of the way in which we both support students pastorally and also develop student leadership.

A major strength of our school is the level of pastoral care. Students are extremely well-supported by their Teachers, Form Tutors and Heads of Year. Behaviour and attendance are excellent, and our students are highly motivated, keen and enthusiastic in all areas of school life.

Camp Hill Girls is culturally rich and diverse, welcoming students from an extraordinary range of backgrounds. As a school community we recognise, celebrate, respect and delight in our differences, and use them as opportunities to learn and become more tolerant about the world around us. We have undertaken considerable work in recent years to develop greater diversity within our curriculum, and are committed to ensuring this work continues and develops in the years to come.

We believe KEVI Camp Hill School for Girls is an inspirational place to be, and invite you to come and see for yourselves. We very much look forward to welcoming you to our school.
