Copthorne Values

Copthorne Prep School has developed an outstanding reputation for helping children to realise their full potential. By providing opportunities for all to succeed, children leave us as confident individuals, well prepared for their progression to senior schools of their choice. We inspire all our pupils to become lifelong learners, responsible global citizens and the very best that they can be.

We strive to:-

  • Instil a desire for excellence in all areas of learning, celebrating effort as well as achievement
  • Offer a well-considered, stimulating curriculum which provides opportunities for children to be challenged, to be curious and to develop as independent learners
  • Support talented and enthusiastic staff who seek to enable children to fulfil their potential
  • Provide a nurturing environment where all children are happy, valued and encouraged to develop as individuals
  • Develop a strong sense of school community that is kind, inclusive and reflects the increasingly diverse and international dimension of school life
  • Provide strong pastoral care based on traditional Christian values of mutual respect towards all members of the community
  • Develop a partnership with pupils, parents and staff to promote a culture of trust, ambition and high achievement

Put very simply our mission is to 

Develop Confidence

Provide Opportunity

Realise Potential

We are expanding to GCSE!

Parents have told us they need a quality senior school alternative, so from September 2021, pupils already at Copthorne or joining in Year 7 will be able to stay with us to Year 11. Our first GCSE exams will take place in 2026.
