Students with headteacher

Year 1

1st December 2020

We completed our Literacy work on Guy Fawkes this week by composing a ‘wanted’ poster to include a description of Guy Fawkes. The children thought of some super similes which made their writing much more interesting to read. Here are some examples. Zoe- His top is big and fluffy like a princess’ ball gown. Finlay- His T-shirt pattern is red like lava. Harry- His beard is as hairy as a dog. Isla- His hair is a brown as bread. As we run up to Christmas we learnt about the symbolism of advent candles and in Art we started preparing for our nativity! Mrs Shepherd’s and Mrs Penrose-Smith’s class weaved silver stars and Mrs Barham’s class made some pink paper cherry blossom flowers! We have also been practising our lines for the Nativity in the theatre.

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. 

Join us at our next Virtual Open Morning or read about our expansion to find out more.
