A sickening video showed a Year 11 schoolgirl being brutally kicked and stomped on by another girl during her break.

The 16-year-old was left with facial injuries and a concussion after the ugly assault unfolded at Whyalla Secondary College near Adelaide in South Australia.

Mobile phone footage seen by the police shows the victim sitting with three other girls on Monday (May 9) when another girl approaches from behind.

She is getting grabbed by her hair and pulled backwards before being dragged on the ground and punched in the face.

"Run your f***ing mouth about my brother-in-law c***," the attacker yells, then drops her head and starts kicking her face.

The rest of the group watch on while she orders the girl to "get the f*** up" and violently stomps on her.

According to 7News, the victim was taken to Whyalla Hospital and released on Tuesday night.

The incident is now under police investigation as officers appealed to witnesses to contact them.

Whyalla Secondary College sent a letter the following day stating: "Violence and aggression are not tolerated in our school, and we will be taking appropriate disciplinary action.
