Introduction

 

Babington House School is an independent co-educational day school located on Grange Drive in Chislehurst, near Bromley. Established in 1887, the school educates around 432 pupils in accordance with traditional Christian values. [1]

 

In the Prep School, class teachers deliver lessons for English and maths, while specialist teachers are gradually introduced for languages, PE, music and art, among other subjects. Small class sizes ensure that all pupils receive the care and individual attention they need.

 

Extracurricular clubs allow children to learn new skills through active participation in the varied activities on offer, ranging from archaeology, ballet, tap dancing and chess club to climbing, taekwondo, horse riding and hockey.

 

The most recent ISI report for Babington House rated the school as ‘excellent’ across all categories and has determined that the pupils’ academic attainment is, in most cases, well in advance of that expected from the age group in question. Furthermore, the school’s learning environment was characterised as one pervaded by happy endeavour and thorough enjoyment, demonstrated by pupils who leave school with an awareness of their strengths and strong capacity for reflective thought.
