Campbell Primary School has traditional, single teacher classrooms divided into junior and senior areas. We currently operate 12 class groups from Kindergarten to Year 6 and 4 preschool sessions. Our preschools are Campbell Preschool, located in our school grounds, and the Allen Main Memorial Preschool located at Duntroon.

Our school is part of a cluster of schools located in the Inner North area of Canberra. The nearby secondary schools are Campbell High School (Years 7-10) and Dickson College (Years 11-12).

Photo of student work Campbell Primary School is a Sustainable School. The basis for all learning is an inclusive regard for self and others, whether it is in the context of classroom learning, whole school programs or outside activities. In this way, all learning, whether it is formal or informal, is based on the school vision of personal, social and environmental sustainability.
Photo of senior playground We provide a rich outdoor learning area and play environment with dedicated play areas for students. The junior area includes purpose-built play equipment for gross motor skill development, a large sandpit, the Handfuls of Happiness Courtyard for small group play and a large paved area that fronts onto the school oval. Students in the senior years have their own area in the Touchstone Courtyard which includes a basketball and volleyball court, amphitheatre and stage area. Our Japanese Garden is located in this courtyard. Further dedicated play areas for older students include the outdoor synthetic futsal court and dynamic play equipment. A spacious playing field completes the play space and is used for a variety of sports during class lesson times and lunchtime.
