Copthorne Prep is a flourishing independent day and boarding school with approximately 350 boys and girls from the ages of 2 to 13. Set in 55 acres of West Sussex/Surrey countryside, including its own woodland, the school is located between Crawley and East Grinstead, five miles from Gatwick Airport.

‘Children are unique and every child deserves a school that is dedicated to developing individual abilities and confidence.’ This is the ethos that informs everything we do at Copthorne Prep; we believe in offering our boys and girls the very best all round education, together with a stimulating range of sports and activities. This approach gives every one of our children the freedom to learn and grow within a safe nurturing environment, and we aim to build and maintain a close partnership between children, teachers and parents. Our commitment to providing exceptional pastoral care is also reflected in the strong sense of community that children enjoy at the school, coupled with a culture that encourages trust, tolerance and achievement.
