Bluecoat Wollaton is hugely ambitious for its students and, as stated in the Principal’s Welcome to this site, we hope to both transform lives and to enable our students to access the best universities in the country.
At Bluecoat Wollaton Academy we have students from Year7 until the end of their GCSEs in Y11 but the expectation is that the vast majority of our learners will continue from Wollaton to our Sixth Form based at Bluecoat Aspley and, as an Academy Trust, we will always prioritise students from within the trust to gain places ahead of external applicants. The journey is very much a seven-year partnership for those at Wollaton.
Bluecoat Academy’s Sixth Form is a diverse and comprehensive Sixth Form situated on Aspley Lane in the city of Nottingham. We are a large Sixth Form of nearing 500 students, offering level 2 and 3 academic and vocational courses; this includes a range of 25+ A level subjects.
The Sixth Form has seen significant growth in student numbers in recent years alongside consistent and significant improvement in standards of attainment. This growth in student numbers has been achieved by retaining nearly 75% of Bluecoat Academy Year 11 students whilst also seeing a significant increase in applications from students from other schools, colleges and academies.
