About Chipping Campden School

Chipping Campden School is an outstanding school (OfSTED 2017) with a long and distinguished history dating back to 1440, and a reputation to match. However, it is also a forward-looking school, striving always to provide the best opportunities for students to achieve their potential in a time of rapid change.

We provide a relevant and challenging curriculum to meet student developing interests and ambitions and our school environment is one which promotes high quality learning. However, education for life is about much more than the academic content of courses, and Chipping Campden School offers a wide range of enriching opportunities to prepare its students for their futures.

It is difficult to put into words the very special ethos of Chipping Campden School but is an inclusive and affirming place to be, both as a student and member of staff.
Located in such an outstandingly attractive town in the Cotswolds, you can enjoy living/working in such an area that is only a short journey from Stratford-Upon-Avon, Cheltenham and Evesham. Moreton has a main line station with direct link to Oxford and London.

There are approximately 1418 students in School, including 323 in the Sixth Form. Every student is treated as an individual while being developed into an active and positive member of the school community and a global citizen. The school offers a very wide range of extra-curricular activities including sport, music and drama and standards here are also very high.

We have a stable staff of well-qualified and talented professionals, united in our desire to ensure that all students reach their potential. We work collaboratively with parents, partner schools and colleges and external agencies to support individual students in this. There is a well established provision of staff development and regular meetings allowing opportunities to communicate, share good practice and challenge and ensure all are secure in the part they play in the success of the school.
