About Copthall School

Copthall School prides itself on educating 21st century women for successful careers in STEM, human, social and health sciences, performing arts and creative industries. We have approximately 1000 students on role, 120 of which are enrolled in our thriving Sixth Form which is in the top 12% of schools for A Level results. We offer both A-Level and Vocational pathways and we boast an excellent success rate in University applications.

The school has improved year on year since the appointment of a new Headteacher in September 2016 which has led to outstanding GCSE results for two consecutive years placing the school in the top 3% nationally for progress.

Situated in Mill Hill, Barnet we have fantastic outdoor space as well as access to sporting facilities at Allianz Park. Our indoor facilities are equally impressive with a specialist dance studio with sprung flooring, a dedicated STEM Scholars classroom and of course, well-equipped and spacious classrooms.
