Head PhotoThe opportunity to educate other people's children is a rare privilege, bringing with it a huge responsibility to provide the best all-round education possible as we aim to prepare young people for happiness and success in their lives. As Head at The Blue Coat School I take this responsibility very seriously. With my staff, I care about the individual and pride myself in the warmth of a Christian community in which all our pupils feel valued.

We live in fast-changing times. This means that providing an outstanding, progressive and traditional Prep school education is more important than ever. Our pupils consistently achieve excellent results, allowing them to gain places at the top Independent and Grammar Schools locally and nationally. But this is just one aspect of a multi-faceted Blue Coat education. Pupils are supported to show ambition both within and beyond the classroom.

School should be fun and happy and children are more likely to be successful. We see it as our responsibility to bring out our children's talents, to broaden their interests and to develop their personal qualities. To do this we aim to foster confidence; to enhance communication skills; to embrace creativity; to encourage teamwork; and to promote an open-minded and outward-looking approach to learning.

Tradition is important here and still shapes some of our guiding principles but we seek to build on the past while looking to the future. The Blue Coat School is, and will remain, a forward-thinking school that embraces innovation and new opportunity.

We are committed to making The Blue Coat education accessible to talented boys and girls whatever their background. To back up this principle, we can offer very significant levels of financial support (up to 100% of full fees) through our various bursary schemes. This continues a long history of support dating back to our earliest pupils funded through subscription when the School was founded in 1722.
