The Bishops’ Blue Coat Church of England High School was founded in 1984 after an agreement between Cheshire County Council and the Church of England. The Bishops of Chester and Birkenhead were instrumental in the school’s foundation.
The Bishops’ High School is the only Anglican secondary school in the Cheshire West & Chester Local Authority and at present one of only two within the Chester Diocese. The other, Sir Thomas Boteler Church of England High School, is in Warrington.
Since 1984 the school has grown in size. In 2016/17, there were 1,022 pupils.
The results of a consultation between 14 December 2010 and 13 January 2011 indicated a clear majority of parents, staff and the wider community to be in favour of the school applying for Academy Status. The Bishop of Chester, the Diocesan Board of Education and the Blue Coat Foundation expressed their support for the change of status, and The Bishops' Blue Coat Church of England High School became an Academy on 1 April 2011.
