Admissions

Welcome to Copthill School

A school that instils in our pupils the joy of discovery, problem solving, risk taking and active participation in the arts and sports.  Where curiosity is encouraged and  learning becomes a positive and relevant experience.

A school life that radiates energy and ignites enthusiasm in all our pupils!

Please call our Admissions team on 01780 757 506 or email admissions@copthill.com if you  have any questions, or would like to book a visit.

My time at school has given me the confidence to talk to adults, become an independent person and made me a happy boy.

Here’s a quick guide to getting to grips with our admissions process.

Come and meet us at Copthill. Call Admissions on 01780 757 506 or email admissions@copthill.com

Once you have received your prospectus and visited the school, the next stage in the admissions process is:

Registration – Please complete the Registration Form and return it with the non-refundable fee of £85. This will ensure that your child is included on our waiting lists for their year group.

Taster Day – Once a Registration Form is returned and a place is available, we will invite your child to the school for a Taster Day.  They will spend either the morning or whole day with       the year group they are likely to join when they come to Copthill.   

References & Reports – Copthill School will request references and/or reports from your child’s current school (if applicable) before they join us for their Taster Day.  This is to ensure       that we can really begin to get to know your child.

Offer of Place – Once we are in a position to offer your child a place we will contact you. This is usually done following the Taster Day.  At this point we will request confirmation from you      that you definitely wish to take up the place.

Confirmation – This is an agreement to the School’s Terms and Conditions and involves the payment of the £250 acceptance fee. A proportion of this is returned at the end of the pupil’s       final term, subject to the terms and conditions. 

Transition Day Once your child’s place at Copthill School is confirmed, they are welcome to join their new friends again during the term before they officially become part of the Copthill    family.

Before and after school care

To support families and especially working parents, we offer fully supervised extended hours at the beginning and end of each school day.

There’s supervision and a breakfast club daily from 7.45am for all ages. Pupils can attend the after school care club which runs daily from 3.30 – 6.00pm.

A very popular tea option is available from 4.30 – 5.00pm.

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.
