St Edmund Campion Catholic School is a Catholic Secondary School located on the corner of Holly Lane and Sutton New Road in the Erdington area of Birmingham, England. The school also has a Sixth Form.
In September 1975, Sister Bernadette, headmistress of St. Margaret Clitherow School, Sister Ingrid, headmistress of St. Agnes’ school and Mr. Doherty, Headmaster of St. Thomas of Canterbury handed over their keys to Mr. Loughran, the headmaster of the newly formed St. Edmund Campion School, which opened using the three sites of the constituent schools.
Until September 2004, the school was situated on two sites. Works completed in 2005 integrated the campus.
In September 2005, the school was granted Specialist Language college status.
The school benefits from retreats to Soli House, Ogwen Cottage an outdoor activities centre in Snowdonia, Alton Castle. Members of the student body make annual pilgrimages to Lourdes with the Birmingham Diocese.
