A swansong for Blackheath Bluecoat School

Greenwich Council might have decided to shut it down, but Blackheath Bluecoat school’s notched up another achievement on top of its fine Ofsted showing – with students and the school itself appearing in this video by rapper, producer and songwriter Liquid (Daryl Goldson to his mum), Remember The Day.

Student Ayoola Fadeyibi plays the young Liquid, head of drama Helen Robertson plays the teacher. They never did this sort of thing in my day…

Most of Blackheath Bluecoat’s students will be off to different schools after this summer. The 300-year-old school’s final year begins in September, with just years 9 and 11 remaining to study for GCSEs and A-levels.
