Impact Statement

We host sporting events throughout the year; provide access to our swimming pool for primary school lessons; and send Sixth formers to local primary schools on primary placements; provide use of meeting rooms and refreshments for a local primary school, and, once a year host a benefit day for local primaries.

The Aldworth Partnership is a project that links Reading Blue Coat School with many state primary schools in the area. The focus of the partnership is transformational ministry. We still raise money (transactional ministry) but the aim is to all grow together in our relationships, values and principles. The symbiotic relationship means that Blue Coat students and local primary school students gain a lot. The aim is to enable every student at Blue Coat to serve in each year they are at the school. The goal is to create partnerships with local primary schools where by both the students at Blue Coat and the students at the primary schools learn and grow together. The Sixth Form students will also run tutorials at the primary schools. The project will be student driven. The primary schools also have the opportunity to use Blue Coat facilities and the Blue Coat students facilitate this.
