Sport plays an important role at Copthill, with a strong focus in the timetable, along with numerous extracurricular sports clubs. We recognise how important pupils’ physical health and emotional well-being are, and the relationship between these and academic achievement. So it’s high on our agenda – come rain or shine.
Pupils are encouraged to ‘have a go’ and enjoy themselves. They’re given regular opportunities to develop their skills and understanding of an impressive variety of sporting activities. There’s something for everyone to excel at.
