Our co-educational Preparatory takes transition very seriously. Babington offers a great experience of learning, while preparing pupils for their future school. Finding the right Senior school for your child to move onto is of utmost importance.
The 11+ examination is very significant. It is something we have achieved remarkable success in with our Year 6 leavers to date with a high pass rate to local academically selective grammar schools, however this approach will not suit every child.
There is the expectation that most boys and girls will stay after Year 6 and go into our outstanding Senior School, however a small number do move to the state grammar schools in the area.
The 11+ preparation we have in place also prepares pupils to sit the Babington House School Entrance Examination for Year 7 entry to Seniors.
Some children move on to a range of independent schools including Eltham College, Dulwich College, Colfe's School and other selective senior schools.
