Copperfield and the community
Our economic impact
We have created teaching places for 26 pupils for the coming year, a figure that will increase by a further 10 places with the creation of our scholarship places scheme. By educating 36 pupils, we are reducing the cost to the taxpayer, freeing up economic resources for communities to focus where they are most needed.
