Life at The Blue Coat School is fun! We have a rich curriculum that deliberately encourages our children to question and to challenge the status quo. Whether it is the outdoor experience of our Forest School or a STEAM project which combines artistic flair and mathematical thinking; whether it is performing on the stage or arriving in School for early morning cross-country; it is our aim to provide an environment of limitless learning for our pupils.

In the words of a Blue Coat parent, our children benefit from, “extensive exposure to extracurricular activity without losing focus on academic rigour.”

Indeed, The Blue Coat School is extremely proud of its strong reputation for academic achievement and we are delighted that our Year 6 Leavers have the choice of the best senior schools within the region and beyond.

The Class of 2022 have received an impressive 204 offers to Independent Senior Schools as well as an outstanding 82 offers for Grammar Schools. In addition, 69 children were awarded 79 scholarships to independent schools both within the region and beyond. Scholarships for academic achievement were in abundance and there were also numerous awards recognising the talents of BCS pupils in sport, music and the performing arts.
