About Bluecoat Beechdale Academy

School of the Year Award

Bluecoat Beechdale Academy was hugely proud to receive the School  of the Year Award at the Nottingham Post Education Awards ceremony at  the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Wednesday, 29th November 2017, after judges  unanimously agreed the Academy had made such incredible progress, it  truly deserved the special recognition.

Bluecoat Beechdale Academy was also nominated in a number of other  categories at the ceremony, including ‘most improved student’ and ‘inspirational support staff of the year.’

We are proud of both Rosie Campbell for being shortlisted and runner  up in the Most Improved Student and to Mr Alan Butters crowned winner of  Support Staff of the Year. Alan has been the ‘dodgeball king’ of  Bluecoat Beechdale Academy for the past ten years, coaching the key  stage four team to victory in the city championships with an incredible  nine years in succession. As well as helping to secure gold awards in  the game across all age groups and organising an annual 24-hour charity  dodgeball tournament, Alan also leads the academy’s volunteering  programme – which has seen it become the first in the country to receive  the Lord Lieutenant’s award for promoting voluntary service.

It was a fantastic evening and a real privilege to share with the staff, parents and students who were utterly delighted.
