Headteacher’s Welcome

Creating Brilliant Futures!

I am delighted to welcome you to our website. I hope you will gain a clear idea of our values and the rich opportunities which create brilliant futures for all who study and work here.

At Campion we want our students to grow as caring, confident, resilient young people who value their education and are ambitious for their future.  Our success is based upon high expectations and outstanding support for all members of the school community.   We are determined to ensure that every student achieves their best.  Central to our ethos are the ACE values of Achievement, Character and Excellence.


All students and staff are challenged and supported to achieve their best. We are proud of our rich and engaging curriculum.   Students enjoy a broad range of subjects,delivered by our dedicated team of specialists.

Learning extends well beyond the classroom.  We provide a wide range of opportunities for students to develop the skills and attributes they need to be great global citizens.  We believe that extra-curricular provision is very important and offer a wide and varied programme for all students including Duke of Edinburgh, music, sport, drama, chess, and Warhammer – to name but a few!


Character development is important; students and staff are encouraged to show Grit, Curiosity, Self-control, Social intelligence, Zest, Optimism and Gratitude in all that they do.   Campion has a deserved reputation as a ‘family feel’ school.  We know that helping others is vital to character development and wellbeing, and our students are at the centre of a large number of charitable initiatives.  There is always an abundance of ongoing fundraising activities that our students take the lead on such as mufti days, cake sales, charity concerts, Campion’s Got Talent and the Christmas Shoebox Appeal. 


We expect all students and staff to show excellence in all aspects of school life including brilliant teaching and learning.  We expect excellent attendance, punctuality, high standards of uniform and mutual respect for all members of the school community. We also take pride in our pastoral provision and put wellbeing at the heart of what we do. Parental feedback consistently says how well we care about each young person.   We value this feedback; parents and carers are very important to us and we need and value their support too.

Campion is a brilliant place to learn and work. The students, staff and Trustees are proud of our school.  I would welcome all parents and carers to come and see us in action - I look forward to meeting you in the near future!

We are
