Welcome to Babington Community College

A Specialist Sports College



We are very proud of our college and have had some notable successes in recent years. We were last inspected in March 2013 and we achieved the top grade of ‘outstanding’. Last year we were in the top 100 secondary schools in the country for the KS2 – 4 value added performance measure. We were also shortlisted in the national TES awards in the secondary school of the year awards. Locally we won the Leicester Mercury anti-bullying award in their annual awards ceremony. Babington was also one of the regional winners of the inaugural ‘Character Awards’ and we were presented with the award by the Rt. Hon. Nicky Morgan, MP, Secretary of State for Education.

We have recently been designated as a National Support School which means that there is national recognition for the work that we have done and means that we will be working closely with other schools in the future to support their journey of improvement as well as continuing on our own journey.

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 our Ofsted report. We pride ourselves on meeting each student’s individual needs which was also recognised by Ofsted.

In our new brand new school building, we are a school on the up and oversubscribed in most year groups.
