Student Leadership

We are extremely proud of the leadership teams we have in place at Blue Coat Academy and the willingness of our students to put themselves forward to work on community projects and support the work and development of the school. The Blue Coat Family enables students to have a say through student voice and opportunities to develop their values and life skills by working with others.

Junior Bazaar

Three students supported Blue Coat Juniors at the Christmas Bazaar event, willingly giving their time on a Friday Evening. Their contribution was much appreciated by the school and the headteacher gave the following comment: “They demonstrated a really positive, helpful and proactive attitude.  Their presence really helped with the smooth running of the event and it was great to see mature and committed Academy pupils in action!”


Old Age Pensioners Party

Every year, Blue Coat’s Sixth form hosts a special Christmas party for Senior Citizens living in the community. Led by the Leadership team, the annual event is held as a way of saying thank you for all those lovely elderly men and women who in one way or another have contributed to the community.

The Sixth Formers organize an evening of games, prize giving, carol singing and charming company with riveting conversation. Miquill, our school’s caterers, prepare a superb Christmas dinner for our honoured guests.
