Appointment of an Interim Principal
The Sponsors/Governors are pleased to say that they have appointed Mr Philip Hearne as our Interim Principal. He started at the beginning of January 2016. It is more than likely that he will be with us until July 2016. In the meantime we hope to appoint a substantive principal who will start later in 2016.
Details of future trips and qualifying criteria are shown in Information for Pupils. This can be found under the Pupils tab above.

We are delighted to welcome you to our website and academy. We hope that you will take every opportunity to ask questions about our ideals and ways of working.
At Blue Coat we believe education to be an undertaking of supreme importance. We are a dynamic community whose primary aim is to develop and enrich the lives of young adults in order that they can become responsible citizens and active participants and leaders in the wider community.
Blue Coat Academy thrives on positive relationships, ambition and inspiration. Our ethos is essential to how we present ourselves to the world. Our faith informs all that we undertake as a school. Our academic and behavioural expectations are built upon the same ethical foundations that demand care for oneself and for others.
Our students come from many different backgrounds and faiths and we use the richness that this diversity brings to enhance the learning opportunities which allow children to blossom and develop in a safe environment which has solid spiritual values.
The Blue Coat Foundation has a long history of providing an excellent Christian education for students. 300 years ago this education was provided for orphans and deprived children who wanted the benefits that a good education could bring. 300 years later, our students’ lives are completely different but their desire to be well educated within a caring family, lives on.
Learning and teaching at Blue Coat continues to be inspired by our motto, ‘Respice Prospice’ meaning ‘Look backward. Look forward’. We look back on and learn from our journey and continue it forward into the 21st Century, bringing your child the benefits of a long and distinguished heritage accompanied by a clear vision for the future.
We are confident that our strengths, achievements and commitment to partnership with parents provide a firm foundation upon which to build your child’s future.
