Additional New Sixth Form Block

Blue Coat School > Sixth Form > Additional New Sixth Form Block

As part of the Council’s Education Sufficiency Strategy, which guides how we meet the demand for secondary school places as well as the statutory duty to ensure every child has access to a school place, Blue Coat school will increase by 30 pupils a year for two years – with the first 30 pupils starting from September this year.

To support the school in accommodating the additional pupils, the Council will be providing a new sixth form block (subject to planning approval), which means we can free up classrooms in the main school. The new block will include six classrooms, toilet facilities, an office and a plant room.

We hope that the new sixth form block can be ready for the start of the new school year in September 2023. In the meantime, a temporary modular building will be provided. This will have two classrooms, toilets and storage space and will be located in the area shown on the plan below.

We have submitted a planning application for the temporary building and you can see that here

We expect the planning application for the new block to be submitted in the spring.

We will update this page to keep you informed.
