Headmaster’s Welcome

Welcome to Reading Blue Coat School.   I hope that you find this website to be a valuable resource and a window that allows you to catch a glimpse of this special school.

We are known for our academic excellence, superb co-curricular offering and nurturing pastoral care.  More than this, however, we are an environment that encourages the growth of intellectual curiosity, creativity and good habits of learning, all of which help our pupils to achieve their potential at Blue Coat and beyond.

We are also a caring community, balancing ambition and hard work with consideration and courtesy.  Do come and visit us; I promise you a warm welcome.


Jesse Elzinga, Headmaster
