Description of the school

King Edward VI Camp Hill is a smaller than average secondary school with a flourishing sixth form which attracts approximately 35 students a year from other schools. The school draws its students not only from the area in which it is situated but also from other areas across the city and beyond. Over half of the students are from minority ethnic backgrounds, although no-one is at an early stage of learning English. Students join the school with attainment which is well above average. The proportion of students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is very low, as is the proportion claiming free school meals. In the sixth form, 18% of students receive the educational maintenance allowance. The school has specialist status in science, humanities and applied learning.
