We offer flexi-boarding at Copthorne Prep. That means you can stay for just one night or for the whole week (Monday to Thursday). Currently we don’t offer weekend boarding, but we’re reactive to our parents’ needs so let us know if that’s something you’d be interested in.
Boarding is run by Mr and Mrs Lee, our houseparents. Mrs Lee has been at Copthorne Prep for over 20 years and is currently the director of wellbeing, head of boarding and a maths teacher. Mr Lee teaches forest schools and outdoor education. Our houseparents look after anyone who chooses to board with us, making sure everyone has a fun and memorable time.
Our boarding house provides a secure and familiar environment to enjoy being with friends, the ability to do homework under supervision and make use of the school facilities for evening activities. We currently have space for 12 boys and 10 girls across four dorms. Our boarders also have their own cosy sitting room where they all meet to spend time with each other in the evening.
