Davison High School is a girls' Church of England secondary school serving pupils aged 11 to 16 in Worthing, West Sussex, England. In its last inspection the school was judged by OFSTED, to be Good. The school accommodates around 1080 girls[1] across five year groups.

The original Davison School was a girls' school, opened on Chapel Road in 1812 and named after the Reverend William Davison, the first chaplain of St Paul's Church, Worthing. The school moved to its current site off Selborne Road in 1960.[2] The culverted Teville Stream flows under the school's playing fields.

A small group of 30 pupils is accepted to the school in Year 7 from the primary schools in the Adur district, with the bulk of the intake coming from the three-tier provision in Worthing into Year 8.

The school is also the home of the Davison Worthing Youth Concert Band which plays a variety of pieces and gives opportunities to any age or ability to join.
