Babington House Senior School is an independent day school for girls between the ages of 11 and 18 (with a co-educational Sixth Form), situated in a beautiful group of buildings on Grange Drive in Chislehurst, Bromley. We encourage applications from a variety of schools including our own Prep Department and select on their academic ability and potential, we also take into account their personal qualities and talents.
Finding the right school for your child is so important and I think it is a place where they should be happy. We provide an academic environment which is tailored to the needs of your child, believing that bright pupils benefit from carefully monitored and well directed learning, where self discipline is highly prized and where everyone is known as an individual.
Our academic, social and sporting endeavours are underpinned by core Christian values which include a respect for others and an awareness of a purpose greater than ourselves. I am immensely proud to lead such a vibrant community and encourage you to come and see it for yourself.

Babington House School strives for academic rigour in all areas and encourages pupils to become confident and able to think for themselves.
We have high standards of behaviour, dress and conduct, benefiting from small class sizes and a strong sense of community. We are also committed to outstanding music, drama, sport and the arts in their broadest sense and we offer a wide selection of clubs, societies and extra-curricular opportunities which go on before, during and after school.
We create a learning environment which caters for the needs of each individual and ensures pupils develop new skills, broaden their knowledge and achieve their potential. Within a broad Christian context we promote ideals of honesty, integrity, trust and respect and cultivate a relationship between home and school that promotes mutual cooperation and support.
