Successful Chess Players

19th June 2016

Yet another successful group of chess players emerges from Copthorne! This year’s Under 7 team competed at Great Walstead last weekend, and out of a total of 20 schools represented, Copthorne Prep came 3rd in the team event. All our players were playing in their first tournament, and Mr Tuck reports an immediate burst of confidence in these players. All are to be congratulated as apparently their behaviour was excellent throughout the whole day … AND they played to a very high standard of chess for this age group … (Sorcha is still 5!)

Virtual Open Day

Another Virtual Open Day!


Our next Virtual Open Day will take place on Saturday 3 October where we will share a link to an exclusive Open Morning page. The page will contain more information about our school and videos showing ‘A day in the Nursery/Pre-Prep/Prep School’.

Should you wish to speak to the Headmaster & Head of Pre-Prep in person, you are also invited for a 1:1 (socially distanced) chat at your convenience.

To book an appointment, or to register your place for the Virtual Open Day, please email our Registrar, Kathryn Billingham-West on
