 Welcome

Blackheath Bluecoat School is a school with a long and interesting history.  It incorporates the Greenwich Girls’ Blue Coat School, founded as a charity school in 1700, St John’s National Church of England School, the first Church School in the Blackheath area opened in 1854 and the Blackheath & Kidbrooke National Church of England School, which opened in 1911. Unfortunately Greenwich Council have decided to close the school in July 2014. This site documents the fascinating history of the school.
