Welcome to

Coppice Performing Arts School

At Coppice we are committed to providing every student with the highest quality opportunities for personal development.

We provide learning and teaching that matches individual needs, challenges and inspires minds and ensures that every young person aspires to achieve their personal best.

Coppice Performing Arts School is an oversubscribed 11–18 age range mixed community comprehensive situated to the North East of Wolverhampton. We are a popular first choice for students joining Year 7. We currently have a roll of around 925 students (140 at Post-16). Additional Year 7 places are planned to assist in supporting the demand from parents and their children.

As part of Wolverhampton Building Schools for the Future we have completed a full refurbishment with the provision of new facilities totaling £17.5 million. This provides all students, and our local community, with a state of the art, 21st century learning environment.

We are incredibly proud of the achievements of every single Coppice student as they seek to achieve their "personal best". Over the last 4 years our student results have broken the school's "best-ever" record year on year.

In 2014 our students excelled themselves achieving GCSE results of 61% 5A* - C with English and Maths and 93% 5A* - C. In 2014 the Government introduced new performance measures for schools. In this more academic measure, which includes a 3rd high level GCSE, Coppice students once again retained their achievement in line with national average.

At A level Year 13 achieved an impressive 100% pass rate. This exceptional achievement has been maintained for the second consecutive year and all students gained their first choice university places in 2014.

At Coppice everyone is dedicated to supporting our students to achieve their successful futures.
