Chipping Campden School is a non-selective secondary school and sixth form with academy status located in Chipping Campden, in the English county of Gloucestershire. Founded in c1440 the school celebrated its 575th birthday in 2015.
The school was founded with money left by John Fereby and his wife, a wealthy wool merchant, for the education of the poor boys of the town. Further investments were provided by Baptist Hicks, 1st Viscount Campden and later the Earl of Gainsborough in the 17th century and John Townsend. The school now uses these founders as its house names.
The original school buildings were situated in the High Street in Chipping Campden offering boarding for boys and later girls in other local buildings.
The school came to be a grammar school until 1965 when it merged with Moreton Secondary Modern School to become a comprehensive. The school buildings were substantially enlarged in 1964 to house the incoming students from Moreton.
