Welcome to Copthill

Welcome to the Copthill website.

As one of the original pupils who attended Copthill, I’m delighted to be running this exciting, vibrant and highly successful co-ed day school.

Our aim is to motivate pupils to succeed, and they truly do. Everyday 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 develop an excellent attitude to  working independently and collaboratively.

These important skills prepare them to join a wide range of state and independent senior schools.  More importantly though, our approach encourages our pupils to have good manners, generosity of spirit and to develop excellent social skills.

‘What makes Copthill different?’ we’re often asked. The list is long and our website aims to convey the tremendous breadth of a Copthill education, from feeding alpacas to having lessons in a wigwam.

In a nutshell, our ultimate goal is to nurture responsible citizens for the future.  We believe we have succeeded when we develop 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.
