Visits and Tours

We are delighted that you are interested in visiting us in person here at Bluecoat Aspley, where our students have immense pride in their school. Our guests often comment on the calm and purposeful atmosphere at our academy and we are confident that you will be impressed with what you see.

This year we opened our doors back up and welcomed families in to view our academy at both our open Evening and Mornings in September 2021, adding two additional sessions to get as many families in as possible.Whilst some visitors choose to visit the academy as part of our formal tours for potential Year 5 and 6 applicants in the September of each year, we also welcome visitors throughout the academic year, often receiving guests weekly. If you are interested and would like to arrange a visit outside the formal tours please email
