Mr N G Neeson
Noel joined The Blue Coat School in September 2016, taking up his third Headship, spanning over 12 years in both the Independent and state sector. He is a member of the National College of School Leaders, and an advocate of ‘learning without limits’. Noel moved up from his former school St. Peter’s Prep School, Lympstone, Devon, with his wife Jules and two children Bea and Jasper. His youngest is still a pupil at the school, while his eldest has now moved on to senior school.
Since joining BCS, Noel has introduced the multi award nominated BCS Blue and has seen The Blue Coat School shortlisted as the Times Prep School of the Year for three consecutive years. He has successfully navigated the School through the COVID-19 pandemic ensuring that continued standards of excellence were maintained both online and offline. The School remained open for up to 200 children of key workers and a bespoke online Distance Learning Programme ensured that pupils having to remain at home were still able to access the very best teaching and learning. Outside of School, Noel, himself a keen sportsman, relaxes by supporting his rugby team – The Exeter Chiefs!”
