Welcoming girls into Year 7 from 2023

I hope you find Reading Blue Coat to be a gem of a site as well as a wonderfully happy and progressive school. To be kind and engaged is what we expect of every member of our community. Kind to one another and to ourselves, and engaged with learning and the wealth of opportunities that can be enjoyed in and away from the classroom.
