Welcome to The Camden School for Girls

Our school motto, dating from the school’s foundation in 1871, is ‘Onwards and Upwards’. This captures the sense of optimism and determination to succeed that permeates the school. We aim to develop resilience in our students, and the ability to be tenacious in their quest to be the best that they can be in all aspects of their lives.

We are ambitious for every young person in our school, and our commitment to their success is combined with very strong pastoral work to make sure that students feel happy, safe and supported at all times. We enable our students to find their own voices and develop their own opinions by encouraging a broad understanding of the world, a social conscience and a considerate approach to other people. Every student is valued, and we encourage all students to value other people as well. Our aim is to nurture caring, confident, responsible and mature young adults who are ready to go on to the next stage of their education.

I do hope you and your daughter enjoy your visit and take away a strong sense of how this school provides an outstanding education.

About us

The Camden School for Girls was founded in 1871 by Frances Mary Buss, one of the great pioneers of women’s education. The main school admits girls and has a comprehensive intake. At sixth form level the school has specific GCSE requirements and it also admits boys. The school aims to create a social and physical environment which combines security and care with challenge, stimulus and the highest expectations, where staff and students work together with the understanding and support of parents and carers.

Our vision for the future is to sustain and to promote the school’s ethos, heritage and philosophy within the contexts of public policy, social trends and educational need, ensuring that it can adapt to and meet future challenges.
