Welcome from the Headteacher
I am delighted to welcome you to Copthall School
Copthall School is a high achieving and exceptionally successful girls’ comprehensive school for students aged 11 to 18. Our mission statement, ‘Excellent Education for All’ and our five key Values underpin everything that we do to ensure all our students leave us confident, ambitious and determined to be the very best they can be. Our outcomes over the past 4 years have placed us in the top 3% for progress nationally at GCSE and our A-Level results are equally impressive with nearly 70% of students securing places at their first choice universities. In addition to this, nearly 22% of students progressed to prestigious Russell Group Universities to study Law and Biomedical Sciences amongst others.
At Copthall, we create a safe and nurturing space and we work in partnership with a range of organisations and companies to build our students’ confidence, broaden their experiences and develop their curious minds. A list of our partnerships can be found on our website.
Student mental health and wellbeing is woven throughout our pastoral programme and sits front and centre of our school development plan. We ensure our students have the best possible pastoral care so that they can remain healthy and thrive socially, emotionally and physically.
Academic excellence, inclusivity and strong pastoral care is what we are renowned for. This has been recognised by the Times Education Supplement who awarded me Headteacher of the Year 2020. I am immensely proud to have received this award and would be delighted to welcome you to join our Copthall family as either a prospective student or staff member, so that you too can share in the experience.
As soon as guidance permits, visitors will also be warmly welcomed.
