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

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.
