Bluecoat Wollaton offers a caring, nurturing and secure environment that enables every member of our academy ‘family’ to be the best they can be in all that they do. Moreover, our relatively small size is an asset to ensure that all of our students are known as individuals.

Bluecoat Wollaton has a history of very successful exam results and prides itself on providing high quality education to the student population that we serve, no matter their background. All staff are highly valued as part of this and join an organisation that has been serving the pupils of the city for over 300 years.

We have high aspirations for ourselves, our students and the community we serve and our intention is for our students to get into the best universities in the country. We are here to transform their life chances.

Bluecoat Wollaton is a Church of England Academy and is proud of its Christian ethos, and respectful of all faiths. We work closely with the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham but welcome staff and students irrespective of their background and this is seen in its diverse intake. At the heart of Wollaton is the belief that all students are unique and valued by God. Our mission statement sums up what we stand for: ‘Believe; in yourself, in others, in God’. Our values of ‘hope’, ‘faith’ and ‘love’ are what the school is built upon and our students enjoy being at school.

In addition to the highest grading at the last SIAMS (Church of England) inspection, in May 2018 the school was also judged as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in all areas, testament to the hard work of staff and students who are passionate about the school and its ‘family’ approach.

We are truly inclusive and pride ourselves on the diversity of our students and employees that attend and work at our Academy. Ofsted’s Amanda Spielman launched Ofsted’s Annual Report citing the school’s work in this area of inclusion and ensuring that all learners are valued.

Bluecoat Wollaton – and our wider Multi Academy Trust – are committed to ensuring staff are given full training to develop in their chosen career paths. We dedicate significant time to this for staff every Thursday through an earlier closing to students so that staff can work in subject teams or within their own wider development that is personal to them, for national qualifications for instance. Collaboration with others is at the heart of this.
