Transitioning from Primary school to Secondary school is an exciting time, with many changes and new friendships to be made. Your Copthall School journey is going to be an exciting one over the next seven years. You can expect engaging lessons from our wonderful teachers, the opportunity to use our many facilities (such as our dance studio and power league) and join amazing extra-curricular clubs. Copthall school is like one big family where you will make friends for life and form positive relationships with our staff.  Our students are extremely supportive and welcome all new students with respect.  Year 7 will be offered lots of support to make sure they feel happy and safe at school. Copthall school offers a wide variety of support, including: in-school counsellors, pastoral support, form tutor support, safeguarding and student representative support. We also prioritise equality for all through our student voice ‘Copthall Connected’ initiative; I feel so proud to see our Year 7s discuss and create change throughout the school. We focus on empowering students from the moment they choose Copthall school as their Secondary school.

It is very special to be a Year 7 student at Copthall.

Year 7 Students - I love Copthall because .....


Chelsy P 7T

I love Copthall because students that I have met are friendly and helpful, including the teachers. I also like how everybody treats everyone how they want to be treated, especially the senior year groups who are always willing to assist we, the junior and new year 7’s. I also love the food on the menu as they offer different kinds of food.  They also include different varieties of clubs.  I love P.E. because it has a lot of different exercise clubs, such as basketball and netball.  I am glad Copthall have a ‘no bullying’ policy and that there is a bullying report on Epraise so if you don’t feel comfortable talking to a teacher in person, you can message them instead. I think Copthall is a great place to be at.

I love Copthall because it is a nurturing place with passionate staff who supported me to start my new journey with ease. They’ve helped me to make new friends, come out of my comfort zone and challenge myself. Even though I have only been here for 2 months, I have the confidence of a sixth former!
