Students with headteacher

Year 5

21st December 2020

This week the Year 5 students created their own – highly emotional – skits in response to one of
Hans Zimmer’s brilliant cinematic pieces in Drama. In History, Year 5 have been looking at famous figures from the past. We researched Grace Darling and wrote letters of thanks to her, imagining she rescued one of our relatives. Most recently we studied Isambard Kingdom Brunel and his engineering feats. In particular, we looked at the Great Western Railway. Here are some of our persuasive posters, encouraging people to travel from London to Bristol by train…reassuring them their brains won’t boil as people thought at the time!

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.
