Our ambition as an academy is to ensure that we embed the core National Careers Strategy of ‘making the most of everyone’s skills and talent for 11 – 19 year olds’ thoroughly, within school life, through both our academic curriculum and pastoral system.

Blue Coat Academy is dedicated to providing a vigorous and varied programme of Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) for all of our pupils in Year 7 to Year 13. This programme is both impartial and tailored to our needs, confidential and specifically designed to inspire high aspirations and encourage our pupils to consider a broad and ambitious range of career options.
