What a super weekend it has been to mark the 300th anniversary of the Blue Coat School. Complete with musical entertainment, all the fun of the fair, a spectacular fireworks display and a delicious lunch with special guest, Denise Lewis, it has certainly been a weekend to remember. We welcomed guests old and new, from the youngest members of our current school community to recent ‘Old Scholars’ and right through to not-so-recent former pupils members of staff who have kept in touch through the years.
The Music Department did such a wonderful job in preparing the children and giving them the confidence to perform in the way they did – there were some very proud parents and it is something that the children in Pre-Prep and Prep will always remember.
Our thanks also go to Members of The Friends who supported the event, joined by a number of volunteers from the parent body, and of course our Catering and Estates teams who worked tirelessly to set up the events – and restored the site to normal ready for the final week of term.

HAPPY 300th BIRTHDAY, BLUE COAT!
