Our Vision

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.


Our outstanding sports facilities include an AstroTurf pitch and cricket net practice area, a 25m indoor swimming pool, a 4-court sports hall and extensive playing fields.

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.

These partnerships include City of Birmingham Swimming Club, Edgbaston Kestrels Hockey, Aston Villa Football Club, Moseley Rugby Club, Edgbaston Golf Club and Edgbaston Priory Club.

Sports such as gymnastics, golf, tennis and fencing are available as extra-curricular activities.
