What the school offers its staff

Thank you for the interest you have shown in the position of Head of Sixth Form at King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Boys. Camp Hill Boys is a remarkable school with an impressive history but looking ahead to a no less notable future, rich in traditional values, yet wholly contemporary in its outlook. Such is the warmth and strength of our relationships, its members often describe it as the ‘Camp Hill Family’; a happy and caring community, with strong working links to the sister school alongside, Camp Hill Girls.

Recently awarded the Sunday Times Best State Secondary School for the last decade, we take pride in an environment in which staff and students enjoy their learning together and where high academic standards are expected but also accompanied by an appreciation of fun and a commitment to opportunity and enrichment beyond the curriculum. No less important than a wide and demanding curriculum is the importance of the arts, music and sport with voluntary work by students and international collaboration adding to an impressive profile.

Camp Hill Boys is also an integral member of the King Edward VI Academy Trust Birmingham and the wider King Edward VI Foundation. We look to our leaders to work as a team aiming to fulfil our ambition of making Birmingham the best place in Britain in which to be educated, a mission to inspire Birmingham’s young people to harness and maximise their potential, wherever they live, irrespective of their circumstances and whatever their aptitudes: academic, occupational, sporting or cultural. Our recent expansion into a wider diversity of schools and local communities is enabling us to accelerate the achievement of that mission and we look to our leaders to spearhead that work.
