Welcome to Copthill

Welcome to the Copthill website.

As one of the first pupils who attended Copthill, I am delighted to now be running this wonderful, vibrant and highly successful co-ed day school.

Our aim is to motivate pupils to succeed, and they do. On a daily basis we encourage them to grow and become independent explorers through risk-taking, and problem solvers through decision-making in the classroom and outdoors.  As a result, our pupils have an excellent attitude to work, and experience working independently and collaboratively.

These qualities  prepare them for entrance to a wide range of state and independent senior schools.  More importantly, our approach encourages our pupils to have good manners, generosity of spirit and to develop excellent social skills, enabling them to become responsible citizens. 

‘What makes Copthill different?' we are asked. The list is long and I hope this website conveys the tremendous breadth of a Copthill education.

In a nutshell, we believe we have succeeded when we have developed a joy for learning and an enthusiasm for life, in each and every pupil.

Come and find out what makes us so special.  We can assure you of a very warm welcome.
