The Campion School is part of the Catholic family of schools with a shared mission to make Christ known to all people. We support parents to develop young people that follow in Christ's example. Our students, through loving compassionate action, aim to be agents for social justice in society.
Through teaching, pastoral support, spiritual development, enrichment and community service students have the opportunities to develop their character through virtuous actions.
"I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full" John 10:10
Although there will inevitably be other virtues that we develop, students, staff and governors have identified these, plus those within our vision and mission, as being unique to our school.
The Campion School does a lot of charitable things. We help the poor and give money to the needy and I hope we can do a lot more to help people. (Charles, 7 Fisher)
