The original school opened at Camp Hill, close to the city centre, in 1883 and moved to Kings Heath in 1956 because the original site was proving too small for a growing school. Now, Camp Hill Boys shares a beautiful campus with our sister school and can genuinely claim to be one of the highest achieving and best equipped schools in the country.
Every year, Camp Hill Boys features at the very top of national league tables for examination results and value added statistics which clearly measure the progress and success of the boys. However, for most of the boys, most of the time, priorities usually lie elsewhere - in sport, music, drama, chess and the breathtaking range of activities and opportunities available at Camp Hill.
We are a relatively small community of 700 boys, who get on well together. Inspired by excellent, well qualified teachers and supported by parents, Governors and Old Boys, Camp Hill is a very happy school.
These views of the school were supported by Ofsted reports in 2000 and 2006 which judged the school to be outstanding. More importantly, the Inspectors found that Camp Hill was committed to go on improving and the school's exciting building programme is a clear indication of this commitment.
The 2006 Ofsted report concluded that "this is an outstanding school, not simply as a result of the high standards it achieves, but because of the well rounded educational experience it offers to all its pupils".
Hopefully, this website will give you a flavour of our busy, happy and successful school.
