Working at Blue Coat

Blue Coat welcomes applications for both teaching and support posts from all suitably qualified persons, regardless of age, religion, race, gender or sexual orientation; we operate an equal opportunities policy.

Working at Blue Coat is rewarding. The school has its own salary scale, there is a professional, friendly and supportive Common Room and teachers’ professional development is nurtured and encouraged through a two-year Professional Development cycle, which encompasses both personal development and the development of teaching skills. The Senior Management Team includes a Staff Tutor, whose brief it is to oversee the professional development of teaching staff. The School is part of the Teachers’ Pensions Scheme, and newly qualified teachers can undertake their accredited NQT year here through the Independent Schools’ programme.

Teaching here is also demanding: the pace and rigour of school life, the expectations both academic and in co-curricular terms, and the need to ensure our pupils have the highest possible level of personal support and encouragement, require teachers with energy, enthusiasm and commitment. All support staff also have a cycle of professional development and appraisal, overseen by the Bursar.

Reading Blue Coat School was recently recognised by the Daily Telegraph as being one of ten schools offering best value in the UK.
