Copthorne Prep School has been a successful boarding community since the school opened in 1902, when it prepared children for top independent senior schools in the country. The school offers flexi and weekly boarding to suit the needs of busy working parents and busy working children! Deliberately kept small (current maximum of 22 beds, the community is by our very popular head of boarding, Mr Bone, as well as some of our great gap students. The school has a friendly family feel and the boarders are treated like part of this extended family. To benefit from boarding, one has to accept that as a community, children are expected to look out for and help each other, the staff are all dedicated to ensuring that everyone enjoys a very happy and successful time at Copthorne.
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. Best of all everyone has a fun and memorable time!
