As an Academy Blue Coat School is its own admissions authority and as such has its own admission policy.
A copy of our admission policy and the supplementary information form (SIF) are available below.
In ALL CASES parents MUST complete their local authority secondary school application form by the given deadline (usually 31 October 2018 whilst your child is in year 6).
If you have any further questions please contact Mrs Curtis via telephone using the information on the Contact Us Page.

1) I DO NOT attend a Church of England or other Christian place of worship (as detailed within your admission policy) – do I need to complete the Blue Coat supplementary information form?
No, you do not if you are applying for an In-Year transfer. However, YES YOU DO, if you are applying for a Year 7 place for September 2019, if you are considered as Another World Faith as per our Admissions Policy 2019-20.
2) I have a sibling (as defined by the Blue Coat admissions policy) already at Blue Coat – do I need to complete the Blue Coat supplementary information form?
If the sibling started at Blue Coat during Years 7-11 and will still be attending Blue Coat when the applicant is admitted then no you do not need to complete the Blue Coat SIF, providing you inform the Local Authority of the sibling link. If the sibling will no longer be a pupil but you attend a Church of England or other Christian place of worship you do need to complete the Blue Coat SIF.
3) I attend a Catholic place of worship (or other place of worship not listed in your policy) – do I need to complete the Blue Coat supplementary information form?
No, you do not if you are applying for an In-Year transfer. However, YES YOU DO, if you are applying for a Year 7 place for September 2019, as you are considered as Another Christian Worshipping Community.
4) I live outside of Coventry, which authority should I apply through?
You should apply to your own local authority. When the time comes, your own authority will advise you as to whether or not you have been allocated a place at Blue Coat School.
