ONE Reading Blue Coat
Reading Blue Coat is known for academic excellence, nurturing pastoral care and a superb co-curricular offering in an environment that encourages the growth of intellectual curiosity and creativity. But more than this, we are a caring community that extends beyond the pupils and staff, to parents, friends of the School, and, of course, our alumni. As One Reading Blue Coat, we bring the whole School community together for the benefit and enjoyment of all its members.

Originality The Reading Blue Coat community is shaped by thousands of one-offs: thinkers, athletes, creatives, leaders, campaigners – we’re proud of this diversity and the great things being done across the world.
Networking Through our online community, events and publications we bring people together; reuniting classmates, triggering new friendships, and sparking collaborations, careers, adventures and so much more.
Ethos Whilst we celebrate individuality, there is an inherent ethos that binds our community. The spirit of adventure, a sense of compassion, and a down-to-earth outlook are the characteristics that make us who we are.
