Headteacher's Welcome

Thank you for visiting The Campion School website.

The school was established by the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits) with a strong sense of community and a rich history. St Edmund Campion is one of the most famous English Jesuits who was martyred for his faith in 1581.  Faith and leading a life that is faith full threads through all that we do in school life.  Please do take the opportunities to come visit us at school at our various open days and functions and you will find us a loving welcoming community. 

The school has developed its own distinct Catholic ethos building on the foundation stones laid by The Jesuits over 60 years ago. The Campion Community now stretches all around the world with ex-students taking all that they learn here at school into the communities that they now serve. Campion’s uniqueness is its belief in service and community which feature prominently at school and in the character of the students leaving the school. Campion School provides an education not just for life in school but beyond so that students make a difference to the communities in which they live. 

Students also achieve incredible results both at GCSE and A-Level and we are a highly academic school.  Around 100 girls form part of our sixth form which has expanded in recent years.  Sixth Form students play a prominent role in school-life. 

The school provides a rich abundance of opportunities for students.  We have a proud tradition in rugby and music but within all the academic and co-curricular activities students develop the Campion Character.  They learn to enact virtues by being charitable, courageous, forgiving, grateful, honest, humble and resilient.  These virtues become habits which will enable all students to be successful both at school and beyond. 

Our Catholic ethos places Christ at the centre of all that we do and we ask our students to live out Christian traditions.  Campion students have always taken action to support the community and these actions carry on today through the many charitable activities we conduct.  Our mission is to create agents for social justice, young people that want to create positive change in the world because our mission is to share the teachings of Christ as: 

The expense is reckoned, the enterprise is begun; it is of God, it cannot be withstood. So, the Faith was planted: so, it must be restored.”
