    Default Any ex Blue Coat boys on here

    Interesting website here, although it's a bit of a pain to navigate.

    It's nice to read a site from someone who left without sitting A levels and is happy with his life as a bus driver, unlike those on friendsreunited who all claim to be brain surgeons and company directors.

    I was there 1982-89 and hated 95% of it, often being ridiculed for not wanting to vote Conservative and my passion for football. Despite this I'm still a little nostalgic and quite looking forward to the tricentenary celebrations.

    I went there and did the same as you, at the time it was a secondary modern/grammar school, I passed my eleven plus and went to the grammar part, if you think it was snobby when you went mate you have no idea what it was like in the 50's. I hated it and couldn't wait to escape. All I ever wanted to be when I was young was a mechanic, so 5 years of latin didn't help my career. I have found some of what I learned usefull in later life though.

    i went there from 1998-2005

    its still a 19th century school in the 21st century, and there definitely needs to be a dramatic rethink over how the school is run in my opinion. In my opinion there was too much focus on retaining the reputation of the school rather than getting people grades i felt (from the top anyway) also, they treated the 6th form like the lower part of the school.

    Default Bluecoat

    Hiya ,
    My son started Bluecoat 2003 & is still there , A bright lad but just from an ordinary background ,He loves the education side in fact thrives on it , So in all honestly education wise i think it'll be the making of him , Class wise he feels half of the pupils are stuck up , ( his words not mine ) I myself can't praise the school highly enough,
