Sport

Sport plays an important role at Copthill, with a strong focus in the timetable, as well as numerous extracurricular sports clubs.  We recognise how important pupils' physical health and emotional well-being are and the relationship between these and academic achievement.

We encourage pupils to 'have a go' and they are given regular opportunities to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of a wide variety of sporting activities. 

  • From Year 1 each year group has a total of 2 - 3 hours of timetabled swimming, PE and games sessions each week with specialist teachers.
  • Pupils have coaching from qualified teachers or specialist instructors.
  • Pupils are encouraged to participate in competitive fixtures and tournaments.  We are both competitve and successful. 
  • After school there are daily voluntary extracurricular sports clubs.
  • Our exceptional facilities include an all-weather astro turf pitch, rugby/football pitches, cricket nets, netball courts, tennis courts, a large hall/gymnasium and extensive grounds to pursue athletics, cross country and orienteering activities.
