About Babington House School

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. 

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.”
