Culture of Caring

When choosing a school, you will of course want to ensure it will suit your child, especially in their formative years. It is important therefore that our ethos and our approach to pastoral care match your expectations of what a modern prep school should be delivering.

It is our belief that, with the right support, happy children will achieve everything they are capable of achieving. Our teachers are here to help your child develop their talents to the best of their abilities.

All staff are completely focussed on getting to know the children in our care, and you, their parents. Pastoral care issues are managed by your child’s tutor, who liaises daily with boarding staff. The tutor undertakes the twice daily registration, as well as ensuring that the day-to-day routine is adhered to and that children are organised and ready for the school day.

At Copthorne we pride ourselves on the level of pastoral care we offer and the fulfilment of our mantra ‘Every child counts’. Our staff genuinely go the extra mile for pupils and parents to ensure that we have children who feel valued, respected and above all happy.

“The arrangements for boarders’ welfare and safeguarding are excellent.”
