All students at Blue Coat are given the opportunity to excel, to consolidate their strengths and follow their passions. We encourage all students to develop as leaders; to take responsibility for their actions and to realise the fulfillment that comes from working as part of a team. These are the qualities and values which prove integral to their future success.
All students have the opportunity to apply for positions as Senior Students at the end of their first year of Sixth Form study at Blue Coat. The application process for the role of Senior Student is highly competitive with approximately half of Year 12 putting themselves forward each year. As ambassadors for the school our Senior Students play a pivotal role in the daily life of school: leading assemblies, running the lower school councils and assisting with the appointment of staff. The role offers many opportunities for successful applicants, developing skills and attributes which can be used to support applications to university, apprenticeships and employment.
