The Blue Coat School is a mixed selective school for students aged 11 – 18, which converted to Academy status on 1st March 2012. We are over 300 years old so we are rich in tradition, yet we are forward-looking in ideas and technology. Whilst we have a reputation for Academic results, there are many events and activities which make The Blue Coat School experience very exciting and rewarding.

Our Open Evening for Year 5 students and their parents was scheduled for Thursday, 1st July, 2021, however, it is not possible for this event to take place in the usual format.  Please visit this page on Friday, 9th July, 2021, where you will find a video link to view information about the school, guidance documents and online application form.  The closing date for applications will be Friday, 3rd September 2021.  

 

The Blue Coat School Sixth Form is the largest in the city, with 350 students studying in our Year 12 and Year 13.

We have great flexibility in our curriculum – there are 18 A level courses to choose from and it is rare that students aren’t able to study the combination they choose.
