For over fifty years Campion School has been well established as one of the leading international schools in Athens. With approximately 660 pupils, Campion has two forms per year in the Junior School and three teaching groups per year in the Senior School. Class sizes are small with approximately 20 pupils per classroom across the school, with class sizes significantly less in the IB Diploma programme.

Founded in 1970 by the Philhellenes Thomas and Betsy Shortell, Campion has three founding aims:

  1. To achieve academic excellence for the English speaking community of Athens.
  2. To create a wholesome environment based on moral values to enable students to develop their characters and become responsible citizens in their respective communities.
  3. To engender and develop an understanding and love for Greece and for Greek ideals.

The school strives to provide a safe, family environment in which children can perform to their full potential in green, secure surroundings in the northeast Attica suburb of Pallini.

We offer a wide range of subjects at both IGCSE level and the International Baccalaureate diploma programme. Campion’s academic programmes are enriched with a large number of extra-curricular activities encompassing sporting, dramatic and musical endeavours.

University Offers for September 2024

This academic year has proven to be yet another year of increased applications from students worldwide to prestigious universities. As a result, the landscape for achieving acceptances is even more challenging than it was last year, which was marked as the most competitive year for undergraduate admissions in recent history. This has not stopped our students however from having achieved tremendous success at this point in the admissions cycle for undergraduate studies beginning in the Autumn of 2024.

Although students that have applied to the United Kingdom have received many conditional offers, there are many replies that we are still anxiously waiting for. Students will be informed of their final acceptances in July when the results of the IB examinations have been released. What we do know at present is that we have received conditional offers from the most competitive universities in the UK such as:

  • MIT
  • Oxford University
  • St Andrews
  • University Durham University
  • The University of Manchester
  • The University of Bristol
  • King’s College
  • Imperial
  • University College London

to name only a few. We are already proud of this cohort for standing out in the competitive UK admissions arena.
