Visiting the School

Open Events

Covid-19 restrictions mean we are not able to welcome visitors on site at the moment and this includes our General Open Morning scheduled for Saturday 3 October will now be a virtual event. Families who register for this event will receive a link to the virtual platform about a week before the event is live. If you are unable to join us for the actual event on the 3 October, you will be able to view the event for several weeks afterwards. This event will be applicable for 11+, 13+ and Sixth Form.


School Tours

We regret we are unable to host prospective families for tours of the School until restrictions due to Covid-19 are lifted. We are sorry for any disappointment. We hope to facilitate virtual tours very soon. If you would like to discuss any aspects of  school life at Blue Coat please contact a member of the Admissions Team by telephone who will be more than happy to help.

School Tours are conducted by either the Director of Admissions, Mrs Jarrett or the Admissions Manager, Ms Fernandes during the course of a normal school day. The tours are for small groups of a maximum of six families, and it is suggested that parents attend without their children. Tours start at 10:30am and last for approximately 2 hours, concluding in the Headmaster’s office, where parents will have an opportunity to raise any general questions over coffee or tea.  Tours must be booked in advance.  Please telephone a member of the Admissions team on 0118 933 5806.

We are sorry we are unable to welcome you to Reading Blue Coat in the coming weeks but hope we will see you when things return to normal. Dates will be published here when we are able to welcome to you Reading Blue Coat.


Year 5 Taster Days
