Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions a parent will make. Our website certainly reflects the individual ethos, the colour, the vibrancy, the Christian values and the identity of The Blue Coat School, which sets the very highest academic standards.
For well-nigh 300 years, Blue Coat has been refining and evolving the quality of its education. It combines a rigorous, cutting-edge approach to learning with an extraordinary variety of extra-curricular activities; it offers peerless pastoral support in an environment that encourages young men and women to grow in understanding.
I thank you for showing an interest in us, and appreciate the trust that parents place in me and the staff. All of us know that choosing the right school can be a daunting process, one in which the emotional investment and financial commitment is considerable. At the same time, we believe that the rewards provided by inspirational teaching are immeasurable – as is the chance to live and learn within a community that is both challenging and supportive.
Experience also tells us that self-confidence is the key to long term success. From the earliest years in Buttons Nursery until the responsibilities associated with Year 6. The Blue Coat Values play a central role in shaping the positive attitudes and actions of our children.
Thanks to a blend of brilliant teaching, genuine care and joint endeavour, young men and women of poise and ideas have left Blue Coat to make their mark in a thousand different fields. We have produced countless caring, thoughtful and confident members of society.
Along the way we believe that they have cemented strong friendships… and had a lot of fun. I see the evidence every day.
