My Copthill journey started when I was in Nursery, I am now in Year 6 and feel ready for my move to secondary school, I can’t believe the skills and knowledge I have gained.  I will miss the amazing teachers, my friends and all the Copthill animals.

Educational Aims

Ensure we place important emphasis on using the outdoor environment to engage and inspire our pupils, to develop their knowledge, skills and attitudes across the curriculum.

Develop a broad curriculum emphasising the importance of literacy and numeracy. Well designed to develop lifelong knowledge, skills and attitudes allowing our pupils to become responsible citizens, independent explorers, creative thinkers, problem solvers, team players and reflective learners.

Ensure we have an open door policy, providing the foundations for effective communication and cooperation between home and school.

Offer excellent preparation for entrance to a wide range of state and independent secondary schools.
