Welcome from the Headteacher
I am delighted to welcome you to Copthall School.
Our school is unstoppable in its pursuit of Excellent Education for All, which has been highlighted by Ofsted. In May 2018 we were recognised for the rapid transformation and excellent progress of students and I am pleased to inform you we have been awarded Good status. The school's GCSE and A-Level outcomes in 2017 were truly outstanding and I am delighted that for a second consecutive year in 2018, our results are again outstanding with 31% of all GCSE grades awarded 7-9 / A-A* which is 10.5% higher than national average. Please visit our exams pages for more information: 2018 exam results.
Our team of dedicated staff set high expectations for our students and create a passion for learning. We aim to provide a safe and nurturing environment to foster, encourage and celebrate every student’s talent; which is mirrored in our promise that every student will be supported to develop the skills and strategies needed to fulfil their potential.
Our long-standing vision; to empower and equip young women to exceed, to provide an inspiring education and to create a positive learning environment motivates all that we do. Beyond academic success, our students take part in an unrivalled series of enrichment opportunities, including residential trips, extra-curricular clubs and involvement in National enterprise competitions.
We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with Mill Hill Independent School and the wide range of joint opportunities for students and staff, including leadership, tutoring, philanthropy, extended projects and a variety of bespoke programmes. We will be working closely with colleagues at Mill Hill to ensure we are providing the best provision for both students and staff.
Our promise to you is that we will work in partnership to make sure your child is as successful as they can possibly be, and I hope our website provides an insight into our unique offer. Our extremely positive ethos is underpinned by our respectful, caring, hard-working and aspirational girls and on behalf of all students and staff; I am immensely proud of our school and I feel fortunate to be Headteacher.
