Blue coat schools
« on: Saturday 09 April 16 20:41 BST (UK) »
Hello from a newbie! From the 1911 census I have found my grandmother Ethel Jessie Mary Bunn at the Blue coat school Birmingham. Can you tell me if I can find registers for these schools for other years, I would like to know how long she was there, is there a website or a book I can research from? Thank you.

My sister and I visited the Central library in Birmingham last year and looked at some earlier Blue Coat School records. I don't know what other records they hold but it might be worth you contacting them, they may be able to point you in the right direction.

I wrote to another Blue Coat school some time ago and they were very helpful.

It may be worth contacting the school directly as they probably have archive records. From what I can make out the Birmingham school is still there.

Good luck  :)
Best wishes HL
