Copperfield International School Verbier

In March 2020, Dr Hugh McCormick founded a college in London dedicated to helping students affected by the pandemic. Copperfield London supported many young people as they battled with the most unpredictable educational conditions.

In October 2020, Hugh moved to Switzerland to open a school in the Swiss Alps with British investor John Porter.
Like for so many who have now spent years in Verbier, one visit was persuasive enough: the challenge now was to recruit students, staff and find a campus.
By January 10 2021, Copperfield’s 12-strong team was ready to open its doors to 30 curious students and their families. 18 months later, we have 28 teaching staff with 211  years of teaching experience, 55 university degrees, and are expecting over 60 students in January 2023.

About
Copperfield International School Verbier

The world’s only ski-in, ski-out IB school!
  • We are an international school founded in 2021 to fulfill a vision of a world-class school in the Swiss Alps: an international community in a unique and inspiring setting.
  • We teach young people to live with both compassion and courage, developing the moral compass, strength of character and technical skill that they will need, whatever they wish to do.
  • Our school will always be student-centred. We start each day, each lesson and each interaction by asking ‘what is best for the student?’, and each of our decisions flow from that principle.
  • We offer all of this under three of the world’s best academic programmes for international schools: the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, A–Levels, the Cambridge IGCSE, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

Our parents say...

It’s no exaggeration that everyone in the school knows each other’s names and faces. That’s special.”
