We are excited to announce that the founders and owners of Copperfield have decided to partner with Dukes Education Group to realise our vision of a world-class education in an epic mountain setting. This is great news for the Copperfield community.


As you know, our vision is to create a leading international school in a location that is both inspiring and safe. While the founding team was able to commence this innovative educational mission with the passionate support of our colleagues and families, it has been clear to us since inception that for Copperfield to fulfill its incredible potential, we needed to partner with a family of schools possessed of experience, scale and close alignment with our values.


This search took us to three continents, into the ancient halls of famous schools and the plush offices of financial institutions. We were not going to settle for anything less than the ideal partnership. And so it was that we met Aatif Hassan, the founder of Dukes Education Group. Aatif’s passion for the transformational power of education, and his commitment to educational quality and student well-being was clear. Aatif has created a family of schools with a mission sympathetic to that which brought you to trust your child to Copperfield, and Dukes decided to bring Copperfield into their family.

Students at Copperfield will benefit enormously from international exchange and holiday camp opportunities, as well as sports competitions. Dukes has superb career counselling, internship and college counselling experience and platforms for children wishing to go to universities in the US, Europe or the UK. Teachers will gain access to the world-class leadership and professional development offerings of Dukes. Parents with children at Copperfield stand to benefit from a huge network of like-minded families and learning opportunities through the Dukes community. Within the Dukes family of schools, Copperfield will maintain its name into the future. International-mindedness, academic standards, and - above all - kindness are important pillars of the education we offer at Copperfield and all this will continue under the guidance of the Dukes Family.
