A Message from the Headteacher

Welcome to The Blue Coat School website, which we hope will give you a really good insight into our school, and show how our young people are learning how to become everything they can be, and are meant to be.

You will find all the information about student achievement and progress across the curriculum, and links to national performance data and reports, so you can see how well our young people do, and why we are very proud of our academic record.

Just as important, you’ll also find, in the newsletters especially, a picture of life in a dynamic community where students grow in confidence, independence, leadership and resilience, not only in their lessons, but in the breadth of Blue Coat’s provision.  I hope you will also see how the school’s Christian ethos shines through, and that all our young people, of all faiths, denominations and none, learn to grow together in love, compassion, generosity of spirit, and mutual respect.

If you are an education professional, or would like to join this great profession, you’ll also find links to our work as a Teaching School Hub, East Manchester Teaching Hub and our work on system leadership, school-to-school support, research and development, and training the best teachers through our SCITT, Manchester Nexus.

We look forward to meeting you.
