The Blue Coat Foundation


I will bless you with a future filled with hope – a future of success, not of suffering. Jeremiah 29:11


The Blue Coat Foundation consists of a federated Infant and Junior School and Secondary Academy

The Blue Coat Foundation is unique in Walsall, offering a Christian education for children from the age of three through to nineteen.
Whilst the Federated Infant and Junior school and the Academy are distinctly separate buildings they are within two hundred metres of each other and are historically bound by a shared belief in the value of a good Christian Education.

The earliest records of the Walsall Blue Coat School date back to 1656.

All three Blue Coat Schools share a very strong, and long standing connection, with St. Matthew’s Church.
