St Edmund Campion Catholic School (previously St Agnes' Girls School) is a secondary Catholic school located on the corner of Holly Lane and Sutton New Road in the Erdington area of Birmingham, England. The school also has a sixth form. It opened in September 1975.

When the school was renamed, the headmaster was Mr Loughran. The newly formed school used the sites of three constituent schools, St Agnes', St Thomas of Canterbury and St. Margaret Clitherow School. Up until September 2004, the school was situated on two sites; upper site and lower site. Lower site which was situated on Pitts Farm Road near Pype Hayes Park and was used by year 7 and 8 pupils. It has now since been demolished as extensive building work which was carried out on the now main site (upper site) between September 2002 and December 2005 has enabled the school to become a single site. In September 2005, the school was granted Specialist Language college status.
