Inspiring Teachers, Inspiring Children

Babington House School is an independent co-educational day school from 3 to 18 years, situated in a beautiful group of buildings on Grange Drive in Chislehurst, near Bromley. The boys and girls receive first class education in a supportive and academic environment with no more than 20 children in a class. 

Teachers inspire pupils from the Sixth Form right down to the Nursery and achieve excellent results. Over the past three years, A-Level pupils have achieved 80% A* to B grades and Babington’s Early Years provision has been top of the Bromley Borough league tables.

The school has just over 420 pupils. Babington is an academic school but also believes in developing the whole child, encouraging pupils to become confident, enabled young people. Teachers get to know their pupils well and lasting friendship are formed amongst the children, creating a strong school community. 

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 (2016).

“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.”

Academic rigour and qualifications are central - but a real education goes way beyond this and develops the skills which enable young people to make the most of all of their abilities and trains them for life. It may be the academic results which secure you the interview but it is the person who walks through the door who gets the job. Extensive extra-curricular activities give pupils the opportunity to try out many new experiences and this, along with a strong set of values, is the bedrock of a rounded, confident individual. 

At King’s this runs true from the youngest children at the beginning of their learning journeys right through to those ready to embark on their adult lives.
