Babington House School: Excellent Education


Babington House: Excellent Education

Babington House School is an independent day school from 3 to 18 years, situated in a beautiful group of buildings on Grange Drive in Chislehurst, near Bromley.

We are co-educational up to 11 years old; girls only from 11 to 16 and have a mixed Sixth Form.

At Babington House, ““pupils throughout the school display excellent attitudes to learning that are evident in all that they do, and an atmosphere of happy endeavour permeates school life”, independent school inspectors find.

In November 2016, Babington House School had an Educational Quality and Compliance Inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI).

The school received the highest grade possible in all categories and across every age group which, under the new Inspection Framework, is described as ‘Excellent’.   This is very rare indeed particularly for an all through school from 3 to 18 years.  Babington could not have done better and such a result from a more robust inspection framework is a remarkable achievement for the school community.


Key Findings:

Quality of the pupils’ academic and other achievements – Excellent

Quality of the pupils’ personal development – Excellent

“Pupils are confident, independent learners and thinkers with high personal values and an awareness of their responsibilities in the outside world, fully reflecting the school’s aims.  They contribute fully to the happy, relaxed and close-knit community.”

Outstanding Results

Fantastic A and AS Level results were received by Babington Sixth Form pupils – 100% pass rate.

A Level – 100% A – C in English and Maths.

AS Level – 100% A – B in English, Maths, Chemistry and Physics.

We wish the Year 13 students well as they are all off to University in September.

Babington GCSE students were also delighted with their exam results.

Babington students achieved 92% 5 A* – C (9 – 4) including English and Maths.
71% of all GCSE grades were A* – B (9 – 5), which are particularly impressive given the new grading.

Isabel said, “I am so happy, these results were definitely down to Babington, I could not have done it without you”.

Karis – “I was so nervous but feel great now, thank you so much, I have not slept for 2 days!”

Parents’ commented, “thank goodness for Babington, what would we have done without you, thank you everyone” and “we’re so grateful for everything, Babington is an excellent school”.

Lilly said, “It does not feel like these are my grades, I am so happy with my Maths!”

“Our commitment to providing an academic and well-rounded education with small class sizes and an individual approach means we achieve the very best from all our pupils.  This has been reflected in the impressive results achieved at GCSE and A Level”, comments Tim Lello, Headmaster.

Come and see for yourself, our next Open Morning is on Saturday, 7th October from 9am.
