Copperfield is an old and long-established Northfleet School, having opened as Dover Road School in 1904.

Increasing success in recent months has meant we are fast becoming a very popular school with local families and we currently have the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren here of former pupils. We are known for extending a warm welcome to families that are new to Gravesend and to many families new to the UK.

As part of the nationwide REAch2 Academy Trust, leaders and staff at Copperfield are committed to working hard to ensure it is a happy school where pupils of all ages thoroughly enjoy their learning and being at school. We consider ourselves to be a supportive extended family of, and for, all our families that is able to meet the needs of the most-able and the most-challenged.

Copperfield has faced many challenges over its history, but a dedicated team of experienced leaders and highly effective staff have successfully transformed the school from its lowest point to a position of strength, vitality, creativity and excellence.
