Miss R Patel

Director of Able, Gifted and Talented (Maternity Leave)


A former pupil at The Blue Coat School, Rena has a strong understanding of the School’s history and reputation. She re-joined Blue Coat in 2009 as a form tutor and English teacher across the Prep school. Shortly afterwards, she became the Head of English, leading the large and thriving English department for five years. As Assistant Head Academic Development, Rena then developed the Learning Success programme across Prep and Pre-Prep, focusing on enhancing provisions for children with SEN, EAL and AG&T. She also established our Outreach programme. Rena believes in making a difference for every child. She now has responsibility for furthering the Able, Gifted & Talented provisions and has a particular focus on increasing attainment across the school in both core and non-core subjects.
