The school is reviewing student needs against current provision , focusing upon developing diversity and flexibility within the 14-19 curriculum. Copland School has a proven tradition of very strong and successful teaching, together with an inclusive care, guidance and support system.
Throughout this website we have endeavored to capture the spirit of the school, but to fully appreciate what we offer, we do encourage you to visit us. We want our students and their parents to have high expectations too!
Each spring we have a sports day. Pupils compete against each other in running, long-jumping, tugs-of-war, and many other games and sports. Every winter we have a Christmas nativity play. Students do not have to take part in this if they are from families with alternative faith backgrounds. Every Easter we have a harvest day when pupils can bring food from their homes to be donated to the poor. Parents are encouraged to come and support their children at these events.
We have a football team, a rugby team, and a girl’s netball team. These teams are part of Middlesex sports teams and compete against pupils from other local schools on a regular basis. We aim for our sports teams to be a form of education to our pupils. They teach them things such as: work hard, keep healthy, be competitive, work in teams, respect rules.
The aims of the Calleva Research Centre are to investigate key questions about the origins, development, causes and functions of human behaviour by bridging the humanities, and the social, cognitive, and biological sciences in an evolutionary framework. The Centre's work is embodied through successive three-year interdisciplinary research programmes that draw on unique collaborations between Magdalen Fellows working in these diverse fields.
We have a scholarship partner, Discovery Learning, who provide a free level 3 personal trainer course to one pupil from our school each year, who we select because we feel they have demonstrated sporting talent and shown enthusiasm towards their education.
