Be the Best that You can be

Welcome to

Coppice Performing Arts School

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

As a result of our shared vision and values we are incredibly proud of the individual achievements of every single Coppice student. In every aspect of our school we expect Coppice students to strive to achieve their "personal best". Coppice students created and voted for our school motto which, they say, sums up what Coppice is about for them: "Dream Believe Achieve".

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 is an oversubscribed 11-18 mixed community comprehensive situated to the North East of Wolverhampton. We are a popular first choice for students joining Year 7 - our admission number is around 180.

As part of Wolverhampton Building Schools for the Future we completed a full refurbishment in 2013, including new facilities totalling £17.5 million. This provides all students, and our local community, with a state-of-the-art 21st century learning environment. We specialise in Performing Arts study at all examination levels.

Our academic expectations & standards in the 6th Form are high. Year 13 students have achieved an impressive 100% A Level pass rate in 2016 and for the last 4 years Coppice 6th Form has been consistently above the national average pass rate. For the third consecutive year all Year 13 students with university offers gained places at their chosen universities on results day.

This is an improving school .. The behaviour of pupils is good .. The Performing Arts subjects are strong – OFSTED 2016

Year 11 achievement in 2016 produced an excellent 100% A*-C pass rate in 8 different curriculum subjects. English and Mathematics pass rates were above national average. Most importantly, the Class of 2016 all successfully gained places at 6th Forms, colleges, apprenticeships or training programmes.

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