I am Ms McIntyre, Head of Year 7
A very warm welcome to Copthall School!
I am Ms McIntyre, Head of Year 7
One of my favourite things about this role is seeing the young people make a positive transition into the school! From the developing of new friendships, to finding your way around a larger timetable; taking those first few steps to becoming a responsible, independent year 7. From the first day, you can expect to meet a supportive form tutor, who will help you to navigate your way through the first few weeks and support you with the day-to-day activities. You can also expect to meet a team of dedicated teachers, who will begin to instil your enthusiasm in their subjects. Your safety is paramount to us and you will have a supportive team of trusted adults to help you with any issues that arise during your transition. You can also expect to engage in a variety of fun activities, such as a sleepover and many celebration events.
We look forward to welcoming you into our school community

This sets me up and places a spring in my step for the day ahead. My colleagues also keep me motivated; everyone has made me feel so welcome which I am truly grateful for.
I enjoy the camaraderie and general support within our SEND team. The students are varied and all have their special qualities
Mrs R Mojaria, Teaching Assistant
“Thank you very much for the opportunity to do supply work in your school. It was gratifying to see how committed, helpful and respectful everyone was and this includes both staff and students. A deep sense of respect for diversity which permeates right from the top of the hierarchy. A deep sense of innate belief - This can be only down to one important factor: Good leadership and this was confirmed from my interactions with both members of staff and students. Well done for getting this RIGHT. Thank you to the Headteacher, receptionists, librarian, the lady who led me all the way to the library, students and the entire community of Copthall School for Girls. I'm humbled by this experience. Thank you.
