OUR VISION FOR SPORT
At The Blue Coat School, our vision for Sport is to offer pupils a broad, balanced programme which is tailored to each individual and prepares children for a lifelong involvement in sport through a culture that promotes sporting excellence.
PROMOTING SPORTING EXCELLENCE
As a Prep School, Blue Coat’s sporting facilities are unrivalled. The addition of an all-weather Astro pitch, cricket nets and two new gym studios have raised the bar even further – BCS Sport is going from strength to strength! We enter many national competitions and have achieved notable success including setting records at the English Schools Swimming Association Finals.
SPORT FOR ALL
A comprehensive programme of physical and creative activities encourages all pupils to try something new and develop their talents and a desire to pursue sport throughout life. Our aim is for all children to enjoy PE and Games by developing their self-esteem in both individual and team games as well as in the gym and the swimming pool. All the children have timetabled PE and Games lessons. Sports Day, Swimming Galas and Gym and Dance shows are held during the year, where children are invited to take part at various levels of competition.
An impressive fixtures calendar sees the children regularly representing the School at matches with local schools, as well as participating at national events such as the competitive IAPS and English Schools Swimming Association Championships. Intra-school fixtures and C, D and E teams encourage participation for all.
The Blue Coat School is proud to have forged close links with local sports clubs and activity providers to enhance opportunities for our children in Sport. These partnerships include Diamond Swim Academy, Edgbaston Kestrels Hockey, Aston Villa Football Club, Complete Cricket, Bournville Rugby Club, Edgbaston Golf Club and Edgbaston Priory Club.
Sports such as gymnastics, squash and ballet are available as extra-curricular activities.
