New pupils should arrive by 8:30am and make their way to the front terrace where staff will be ready to greet them and take them to assembly. We encourage all pupils to walk, cycle or use public transport but if parents/carers are dropping off, we ask that they do so at a safe distance from the school site, since local roads get extremely congested. Parents/carers are not permitted to drive on to the school site.
New pupils should be smartly dressed in their uniform and have their pencil cases and writing equipment ready to start their first day!
The presentation of our pupils is something that we are very proud of. Every pupil carries a uniform card which members of staff will ask to be presented with if uniform falls below school standards. These cards are carried in blazer pockets so please remove before washing. Detentions are issued for repeated infringements of uniform rules. There are full details of uniform and further guidance on recommended suppliers and on selecting appropriate school shoes with in the Uniform Policy.
There is more detail on our uniform here as well as information on the pop-up shops that our uniform provider, Stevensons, will be running on the dates below at The Blue Coat School:
If parents and carers are unable to attend these dates all uniform is available to purchase online via the Stevensons website.
