The Old Scholars’ Association links together all former pupils of the school and promotes their friendships for as long as they wish to remain in membership. An annual newsletter is mailed/emailed to members around the globe, and reunions are arranged each year. Former pupils retain strong loyalties to Blue Coat. Several have married in the School Chapel and are now sending their own children to the school.

We are always delighted to hear from all our Old Scholars, both young and …not so young! If you live within driving distance of the school and would like to be a member of the Committee, then please feel free to let us know – we are always looking for new members with new ideas. Whoever you are, wherever you are, please keep in touch.

Mrs Lindsay Lucas is eager to receive your news and can be contacted on 0121 410 6800 or at
