Thank you for taking the time to look at our Virtual Open Evening 2021. We are sorry that we cannot welcome you to an on-site Open Evening event at this time, however we hope the videos and information on this page give you a flavour of Blue Coat Church of England School & Music College. We are also running Open Mornings as an alternative, providing the opportunity for you to visit the school with your child to see our work in action. Events will take place throughout the year and tickets will be available shortly via TicketSource.


Welcome to Blue Coat


About Blue Coat

Blue Coat Church of England School and Music College is a vibrant and inclusive large comprehensive school in the heart of Coventry. Blue Coat is a Church of England School and this identity is of great significance to us. Our vision is about ‘living life in all its fullness’ and we aim to provide excellent education which is distinctively Christian yet inclusive of all.

Blue Coat has a rich history stretching back over 300 years to 1714, when it was founded near Holy Trinity Church as a girls’ school with a mission to provide opportunities for all students. The current site has been open since 1964, but the desire to bring quality education to all remains. In April 2020 Blue Coat became a member of the Inspire Education Trust, and this family of schools recognise that ‘Through a first class education you will discover who you are, learn to flourish and live life in all its fullness’.

At Blue Coat we place high importance on developing the whole individual: academically, socially and spiritually. At the heart of the school lie our Values: Care, Hard Work, Respect, Integrity, Servanthood and Togetherness. Through these Values our whole school community can grow together and live life in all its fullness.
