Sport plays an important role at Copthill, with a strong focus in the timetable as well as numerous extra-curricular sports clubs.

All pupils take part in regular sport throughout the week as part of their educational programme. All year groups have a total of 2-3 hours of timetabled Swimming, PE and Games sessions each week with specialist teachers. There are also daily voluntary sports clubs after school and at lunch times. Pupils have coaching from qualified teachers or specialist instructors and make use of excellent facilities including an all-weather astro-turf pitch, rugby/football pitches, cricket nets, netball courts, tennis courts, a large hall/gymnasium as well as extensive grounds to pursue athletics, cross-country and orienteering activities.

All pupils are encouraged to participate in competitive sport and represent the school in the huge variety of fixtures which take place each week from U9 – U11 level. There are many fixtures and tournaments each term and we pride ourselves on ensuring that everyone gets opportunities to participate.
