King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Boys

Headteacher: Mr Martin Garrod

Motto: Spartam nactus es, hanc exorna (Develop whatever talents you have inherited)

History: Originally located in a site near New Street, the King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Boys moved to the home from which it took its name at Birmingham Camp Hill in September 1883. It remained there until 1956 when it moved to Kings Heath but retained the name of the former location. The school shares its campus with the girls’ school, but they are very much independent of each other. They do link up occasionally for drama, concerts and plays.

Facilities: With a new sports hall officially opening in 2006, students can now make use of the two gyms and a drama & dance studio. There was also an extension built which opened in time for the 2016/17 academic year which provides new state of the art classrooms and science laboratories. These we needed to allow the school to add 30 extra places a year.

Sport: Rugby and Hockey are the main winter sports. Pupils are also encouraged to take part in basketball, tennis and gymnastics. There is also a good house competition which sees pupils take part in a range of sports in competition for house points.
