We are delighted to announce that from January 1st 2017 The Blue Coat School will take responsibility for the Foundation Building, an area which is currently under the stewardship of the Foundation Trustees. With this change The Blue Coat School will have full responsibility for all parts of the School estate. The acquisition of this additional space, which is currently administered by The Blue Coat School Foundation, marks an important and exciting first step in our accommodation strategy which includes ambitious plans to redevelop and remodel this section of the School in addition to other areas currently in need of redevelopment.
Increasing the amount of space we have available is key to ensuring we provide our growing number of students with the very best accommodation and resources. The Blue Coat School Foundation, our longstanding and extremely supportive charitable arm of the School, have affirmed their support for the programme by additionally donating a significant sum of money to the School to undertake the necessary remedial, redevelopment and refurbishment work to key parts of the School including the Shirley Hall.
Once complete all of our resources and facilities will meet the needs of the high quality curriculum, teaching and learning which are at the heart of the School’s proud heritage and ambitious plans for the future.
We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank our Foundation Trustees for the magnificent support they have shown to the School. The whole Blue Coat community value the foresight, generosity and care demonstrated by our Trustees’ recent decision.
