Bishop of Hereford's PFSA

The Bishop of Hereford's Bluecoat School

Parents Staff and Friends Association


The PSFA aims to organise and support events that involve & engage students and their families & friends. We aim through these events to raise monies which will be used directly to benefit all students of the school.

Monies raised recently have purchased extra outdoor seating facilities, and previously we have helped towards the cost of the bus shelter, school lockers and the school minibus. Monies raised from events in the 2015-2016 school year will go towards the refurbishment of the Woodard Room.

By far the biggest – and most public – of all our events each year is the Year 11 Leavers’ Prom, which takes place towards the end of summer term in the School Hall, which is transformed beyond recognition through the efforts of a large team of volunteers.

Some of our recent events include:

  • Bishops Got Talent (2013, 2014 & 2016)
    A wonderful evening of song, dance & comedy from some very talented students, with a panel of judges and a packed hall of supporters all voting for their favourite.

  • A Night at the Musicals (2014)
    An evening of songs from the shows performed by students at the school, alongside special guests St Paul’s Primary School.
  • Love It! (2015)
    Another packed hall enjoyed a night of song, spoken word and dance performed by students and special guests Nicola’s School of Dance.
  • Showtime (2015)
    Two special evenings dedicated to the world of shows, featuring students from the school alongside pupils from St Paul’s Primary School, Hampton Dene Primary School, St Mary’s Primary School (Fownhope), and Mordiford Primary School, as well as a guest appearance by dancers from Bodylanguage School of Dance.
  • A few Questions of Sport (2016)

  • Showtime 2 (2016)
