The clerk is a paid employee, Sarah responds to emails Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and is appointed by the Governors. Sarah has been Clerk since 1st July 2018.


The school has three Trustee bodies:


  • The Churchwardens of St. Eadburgha's, Ebrington


  • The Churchwardens of St. James', Chipping Campden


  • The Thynne & Weymouth Endowed Schools Foundation : Children who attended St. James', who live within the boundaries of the parish of St. James', are provided with a small grant to help them buy certain essentials before transferring to secondary education, on leaving Year 6.  At the point when they move on to higher education, after A levels, those who transferred to Campden School are offered a further grant as long as their permanent address is still within the parish boundaries.  A supplementary grant is provided as they enter their third year in higher education, again, with the residency proviso. 

    Those students who attended St. James' and still comply with the residency clause, who decide to leave Campden School after GCSE results, may apply for a grant if they decide to continue their studies at one of the further education colleges.  The Trustees, however, do not pay out on these grants until the student provides written proof of his/her satisfactory completion of their chosen course.
