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.

The school received the highest grade possible in all categories and across every age group in an Educational Quality and Compliance Inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) in November 2016. Under the new more robust Inspection Framework, this is described as 'Excellent' and is very rare indeed. Babington could not have done better and such a result is a remarkable achievement.

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

Our commitment is to provide an academic and well-rounded education with small class sizes which is tailored to the needs of our pupils, believing that bright children benefit from carefully monitored and well directed learning, where self-discipline is highly prized and where each pupil is known as an individual. This helps Babington House pupils grow into confident, accomplished, creative young people with emotional intelligence and high standards.

Babington is an academic school. Our results are outstanding; Babington was ranked the top small independent school in England for A level results 2018 – 68% A* and A grades. Our academic, social and sporting endeavours are underpinned by core Christian values. There is a strong sense of community at Babington House.

The co-educational Senior School is academically selective with an Entrance Examination for Year 7 entry. In Babington's Sixth Form, the focus is very much on A-level study in small sets whilst at the same time providing the opportunity for work experience, which helps university applications stand out and provides great self-confidence.

Headmaster, Mr Tim Lello says "I am immensely proud to lead such a vibrant community. Babington House is an excellent school in every way. The boys and girls receive a first class education in a supportive and academic environment. Our parents and pupils are happy and we achieve excellent results."
