“I was so worried that I wouldn’t fit in, but everyone was so welcoming. I finally felt like I belonged somewhere.”Blue Coat Student
We are a multi-faith, multi-ethnic and multi-talented community. Collective worship takes place at least once a week, and gives all of our students time to reflect on the challenging questions that life throws up. The school’s foundation is the Church of England and that underpins our approach and values. We nurture Christian students in their faith, support students of other faiths in theirs, and try to make all of our young adults see the importance of faith in our communities and consider the big questions about life, ethics and meaning.
Your Well Being
We appreciate that there are changes as you move from Year 11 into Year 12, and we want to ensure that you feel safe and secure during your time with us. The fortnightly well-being sessions are designed to offer a programme of support and insight into social influences which may impact on your individual well-being as a young adult.
The Sixth Form Lecture Programme
Our fortnightly lecture programme supports you to rise to the challenge of independent Sixth Form work, dealing with issues such as time-management, study skills and personal targets. These are the skills that also make you a successful life- long learner.
In Year 13 the lecture slot is used to keep you fully updated on the UCAS applications process, how to apply for apprenticeships and life in general after Sixth Form.
These sessions are delivered by the Sixth Form Team, but also often involve guest speakers from relevant areas of interest such as universities, apprenticeship providers and extra-curricular providers.
