Founded in 1646, Reading Blue Coat School is a leading independent day school of 480 boys aged 11 – 16, with 260 in the co-educational Sixth Form. The School is located on a beautiful 46-acre campus in the village of Sonning, just outside Reading, overlooking the Thames.
The School offers a stimulating, friendly and supportive atmosphere in which each pupil can realise his or her full intellectual, physical and creative potential.
The School has changed immeasurably over the last ten years, and the Chairman and Governing Body now seek a new Head for September 2020 to succeed Jesse Elzinga, who will have completed four years of outstanding service.
This is an excellent opportunity for a candidate of the highest calibre to build on a strong legacy, nurture the school over a period of time, and oversee a number of exciting projects and drive the School through the next stages of its development.
