About Blue Coat School & Music College
Blue Coat is a successful and oversubscribed school in the heart of the city of Coventry. As a Christian school our intake draws from both the local area and across the city and surrounding areas. Consequently we have a diverse intake and a culturally thriving school. The school was graded 'Outstanding' in its SIAMS inspection and 'Good' by Ofsted in June 2016 and continues to perform exceptionally well academically. In 2018 our average grade at GCSE was 5.29 and our Progress 8 score was +0.33. The vast majority of our students stay on into the sixth form and continue their studies.
We have a large and successful Post 16 provision with 300 pupils on average studying either A levels or Vocational Level 3 courses. We have excellent rates of progression to universities, apprenticeships and employment.
