RE Quality Mark Gold

We are thrilled to announce that our RE department have achieved the Gold Standard Quality Mark from the Religious Education Council in recognition of their creative and innovative practices.


“RE at this school is exciting and demanding for most pupils. They make very good progress in their learning and the school delighted by its exam successes, but also by its contribution to everyone’s personal development. The RE team of six well- qualified teachers are committed to creative and relevant teaching, to a well-balanced curriculum, and to sharing their success with other schools and education departments locally and nationally. Staff are engaged in research applied to RE, and the department is well-supported by the senior leaders, including the Head of Department, by the headteacher and by the governors.”


“A privilege to visit Bluecoat, and to spend time with such enthusiastic colleagues and students in such a positive environment. Thank you.”
