2018 saw the launch of our BCS Experience Days – an enrichment programme, based on a range of subjects, designed to inspire and enthuse pupils from our neighbouring schools. Our current Experiences include Modern Foreign Languages, Forest School, Multi-Media, Creative Arts, History and STEM. Since then we have welcomed 120 children from six Birmingham schools to participate in a range of different activities.

Our aim is to give local Key Stage 2 children the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities in specialist areas of learning in a fun, memorable and varied way. The Experience Days take place at The Blue Coat School in Harborne. Each Experience Day is free of charge, lunch is provided and we may be able to collect and return pupils at the start and the end of the day. Places available for each Experience will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

We look forward to strengthening our links with local schools. If you have any questions, please contact Miss Rena Patel, Assistant Head (Academic Development). Email:
