Description of the school

King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Girls is a voluntary aided, selective school with a flourishing sixth form. It is situated in Kings Heath, south of Birmingham city centre, but draws its students from a diversity of wards and backgrounds across the Midlands. Attainment on entry is well above average. Just over half of the students are from minority ethnic backgrounds. However, no-one is at an early stage of learning English. The proportions of students eligible for free school meals and those with learning difficulties and disabilities are low. The school gained specialist status in mathematics and computing in 2005.
