Blue Coat School is the lead school for The Cranmer Education Trust.

Please note that Blue Coat’s Admissions Policy does not give priority to children from other Cranmer Education Trust schools, as this would be in contravention of the national Admissions Code.

Full details of oversubscription criteria are included in the Blue Coat’s Admissions Policy and Guidance for Parents.

Parents/guardians applying for a place at The Blue Coat School are strongly advised also to complete the Supplementary Form, which should be returned to the school.
