Headteacher’s Welcome

Creating Brilliant Futures


It is my pleasure to welcome you to our website and to our school. As Headteacher of Campion I am incredibly proud of our staff and students.  Daily as I walk around the school I observe enthusiastic teachers fully committed to providing rich learning experiences for our children.  I see keen learners working hard to do their very best.  Visitors to our school comment on how well our students interact with each other and staff, which creates a purposeful, calm yet friendly and welcoming atmosphere in which students have full opportunity to fulfil their potential.

The school has made tremendous progress since its last inspection in March 2018, it is a different school.  This has been recognised in our most recent remote Ofsted inspection in April 2021.  Inspectors reported Trustees and Leaders “have taken swift and decisive actions focused on improving the school since the previous inspection” and “Trustees challenge and support leaders effectively to lead and manage the school and its curriculum well”.

AchievementOur vision is to Create Brilliant Futures for all our children and in doing so develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to become great global citizens.  We do this by setting high expectations of each other combined with excellent learning experiences delivered in a caring environment where all will be challenged to stretch their boundaries and achieve more than they thought possible.  Our three values are at the core of all we do.



Exam results matter.  We understand this and encourage all students to aspire to success.  That said we strongly believe that the journey is as important as the destination and prepare every student for their next steps whether that be university, college or apprenticeship with the habits of independent learning and critically a love of learning.

We are committed to providing a safe learning environment through our well planned assembly, tutor and PSHCE programmes, fostering respect for individuality and differences.  Well resourced pastoral care nurtures physical and mental health and emotional maturity promoting teamwork, leadership and competition through our house system.  We are determined that our students should be able to participate in as wide a range of activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh award up to and including the Gold award, Cadets and World Challenge.  We have an extensive programme of enrichment before and after school including a wide variety of sports, performing arts and other clubs.

The website and our regular newsletter, the Campion Way, should give you an insight into our school. However, a website can never be good enough to show all that we offer.  If you would like to see us in action just contact the school.
