Diocese of Lichfield

The Lichfield Diocese is the main sponsor of Blue Coat Church of England Academy and co-sponsored with Holte School based in Birmingham.

St Matthew’s Church

Blue Coat Church of England Academy has strong links with St Matthew’s Church. We hold a weekly assembly for the whole school with guest speakers, performances and prayer. Prize Evenings and Blue Coat Sunday are also held here.

“A truly unique feature of the Academy is the inspirational Friday worship for the whole school in St Matthew’s church. It is a high point of the week for staff and students, a ‘not to be missed occasion’ that sets unequivocal and uncompromising expectations for the values to be lived out in school”
