The Blue Coat School, Birmingham, was founded as a Charity School in 1722.
To this day we continue to financially support children to attend The Blue Coat School with Bursaries of up to 100% of school fees. These are awarded each year to children entering Year 3 in September.
Joining at Year 3, your child will enjoy a varied curriculum including subjects such as French, STEM, Humanities, Creative Arts, Music and lots of Sport! Our facilities are second to none and include an indoor swimming pool, astro, Science Lab, Creative Arts Studio and Multi-Media Centre with a giant green screen.
At The Blue Coat School, we will prepare your child for the 11+ examinations. We have a strong track record of academic achievement with Year 6 pupils gaining places at grammar and independent schools, many also gaining scholarships for academic, music and sporting achievement.
The Blue Coat School has a Bursary Fund which supports up to 30 children at any one time. There are children benefiting from 100% fees discount, along with a number of smaller awards. The Awards are means tested and will take into account things such as your total household income, equity, number of siblings etc.
A 100% Bursary will cover all school fees, a uniform allowance, plus two extra curricular activities e.g. a club or an instrumental lesson in school.
Entry to Year 3 is determined by an Entrance Test which assesses English and Maths. For pupils joining in September 2023, the Entrance Test will take place on Saturday 3 February 2024. The deadline for bursary enquiries for 2024 entrance is Friday 19 January 2024. You can also make an enquiry for future years by completing the form below.
Following the Entrance Test, shortlisted applicants are invited for an informal meeting with a senior member of staff. In addition Bursary applicants will receive a Home Visit to discuss their application further with a School Representative, currently a member of Bursary Administration Limited.
