At Copthill there is a sport for every child, whether they are highly competitive or just want to have fun. Sport plays an important role at Copthill, and is strongly represented in the timetable, alongside numerous extra-curricular clubs and teams taking part in inter-house tournaments, as well as local and national school competitions.

We recognise how important our children’s physical health and emotional well-being are, and the relationship between these and academic achievement. So sport is high on our agenda, and we have extensive facilities: rugby and cricket pitches, astroturf pitch, tennis courts, shooting range, many cross-country routes and wide expanses of play areas.

Children are encouraged to ‘have a go’ and enjoy themselves, while for those who want to develop their skills, there is high-quality coaching and training.
