So, there you go, we have concluded our Summer Term and the school year 2020/2021.

It has been the most incredible year of change and adaptation and there has most certainly been high points and low points but throughout the year, our pupils and staff have shown such patience and resilience and we now break up for a well-deserved summer holiday.

We would like to wish all our pupils, staff, parents, carers and our wider community a lovely summer break.

We look forward to welcoming pupils back to school in September as follows:


Monday 6 September 2021 – First day of term for Year 7 pupils only

Year 7 pupils should arrive at 0830 and they will be directed to the hard courts where they will be met by their tutors who will take them to their tutor bases.  Pupils will be able to come onto site using the main Shearwater Avenue entrance and the Pupil Entrance on the A27.


Pupils should wear Cams Hill School PE kit on this day as they will be taking part in the team building activities during the day.  We also ask that pupils bring a bottle of water, a hat and apply sunscreen in the event of warm, sunny weather.


Year 7 pupils will be issued with their timetables on Monday 6 September 2021.



**  Tuesday 7 September 2021 – First day of term for Year 8, 9, 10 and 11 pupils


Pupils will register with their Tutors on arrival with Tutor Time extending into Period 1. Pupils in 8, 9, 10 and 11 will need to wear full school uniform and will be issued with their timetables during morning registration.


Pupils in Year 7 will be able to wear PE kit if they have PE taking place according to their timetable.

Art Department – Trip to West Witterings


During their trip to West Witterings a couple of weeks ago, Year 8 pupils were invited to create a piece of land art, in the style of Andy Goldsworthy. They made use of the resources available to them such as pebbles, seaweed and sticks. We had an array of creations ranging from three-dimensional structures to simple drawings in the sand. Photographs were then displayed for pupils in the year group to vote for their favourite.


We were so impressed with pupils’ work and have shared the results of the vote with pupils. Here are some photographs of the pupils amazing work below.



Events at Cams Hill School


Cams Hill School will be hosting two must-visit events this Summer. If you are interested in art work produced by local artists, then look no further than your own school!
