    Show My Homework

In response to this we are excited to be the first school in Birmingham to use a new online service which enables parents to keep track of their child’s homework and deadlines. The service is free to access and available via the Internet. Read More

  • New Cycle Shelter
    8th January 2013

    A new cycle shelter has been erected in the school drive outside the Technology workshops. This shelter will provide secure storage since the gates to this section of the school drive are locked during the school day. The shelter has been provided to the school free of charge and results from our association with Bike North Birmingham who provide one of our Wednesday Activities and an Extension Activity for members of the Sixth Form. In the Wednesday Activities students learn about safe cycling and get to enjoy a ride along a number of safe routes in the school vicinity. In addition they learn about keeping a bicycle in good condition, basic maintenance and keeping fit through cycling. Students are encouraged to cycle to school and we ask that those who do from now on leave their bikes in this new shelter. For additional security we suggest that students bring a suitable lock to secure their bike inside the shelter. Read More

    Headteacher's Christmas Message
    20th December 2012

    We have come to the end of a long term and the whole school community is looking forward to a well-earned rest. The prospect of Christmas cheers us and lifts our spirits away from the cold, dark and depressing weather of the season. Year 11 and the Sixth Form have worked hard completing their mock examinations and we look forward to their results in January which I am sure will be very pleasing as they conducted themselves very well during the exam season. Spiritually, we have been preparing the students for Christmas in our Advent assemblies and Walk with Me reflections which have been used by teachers during form period. Tomorrow we celebrate this holy season with our Christmas assemblies as well as Reward/Achievement assemblies. Read More

  • Campion Feast Day

    Campion Feast Day
    14th December 2012

    This year’s “Campion Day Mass” was quite simply one of the best ever. Before mass began the school community was treated to Oran Grigg’s rousing rendition of “Abide With Me” on the Irish bagpipes. The main celebrant, Mgr. Pat Brown (along with Fr David Newell our chaplain, Fr Peter Conley and Fr Francis Dickinson) have surely never experienced such a moving procession. When the celebrants had all taken their places and the 1000 students, who were impeccable throughout the whole day, the lights were dimmed and we were treated to a short film showing the pilgrimage made to the site of the Tyburn Tree in London – the site of our patron’s martyrdom.
