Extended weeks

During half terms and school holidays, we run extra activities and full week courses, as well as an action packed Summer School. The timetable for these additional weeks is published in advance to allow parents to plan ahead. Pre school pupils can attend for approximately 12 additional weeks a year and Year 1-6 pupils have options for approximately 5 additional weeks a year.

Summer School

During the Summer holidays, Copthill staff along with external professionals, run a wonderfully busy and fun Summer School. This is open to all present and prospective pupils. Activities involve different sports, crafts, musical activities, traditional games and exciting campovers.  Click here and scroll down to see the full list of activities that we organise to help busy parents and to delight pupils.
