Welcome to Babington Community College
A Specialist Sports College
We are very proud of our college. We are especially proud of our ‘Outstanding’ judgement from Ofsted – the top grade. The full report can be seen on the website. Babington has been a rapidly improving school for some time now and this was recognised in a letter we received in January 2013 from Rt. Hon. David Laws, MP, Minister of State for schools. The letter informed us that we were in the top 100 best performing secondary schools in the country for improving pupil progress from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 4. We were also regional winners of the inaugural pupil premium awards hosted by Rt. Hon. Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister. Work is well under way on the multi-million pound new school building that will open in September 2014 and in every sense of the word, Babington is very much a school ‘on the up’.
Our behaviour policy is very strong and robust and we will not tolerate bullying of any kind at Babington. Our ‘strong anti-bullying culture’ was recognised in the Ofsted report and we recently won an award for our anti-bullying strategies. We pride ourselves on meeting every student’s individual needs which was also recognised by Ofsted.
With record GCSE results for 4 out of the last 5 years, 91% of last year’s year 11 leaving with at least 5 good qualifications and above national average figures for pupil progress in many areas, we continue to strive for greater things. We are working closely with our Trust partners to build even further on our recent successes.
