Welcome to Babington Community College

A Specialist Sports College


2014 GCSE results – the best in the College’s history.

We are very proud of our college.

We are particularly proud of our GCSE results for 2014. On all three government measures we achieved our best ever results and we were above national averages on all three measures.

We are also especially proud of our ‘Outstanding’ judgement from Ofsted – the top grade - which we achieved in March 2013. The full report can be seen on our website.

Babington has been a rapidly improving school for some time now. This year we received a letter from Rt. Hon. David Laws, MP, Minister of State for Schools, informing us that we were in the top 100 secondary schools in the country for our value added measure from Key Stage 2 - 4. Out of over 3000 state funded secondary schools, we were number 81.

We were regional winners of the inaugural pupil premium awards in 2013 and this year we were regional winners of the inaugural character awards and we received our award in London from the Secretary of State for Education, Rt. Hon. Nicky Morgan, MP.

On September 1st 2014, we moved into our brand new, multi-million pound school building. In every sense of the word, Babington is very much a school on the up and is now very popular with parents and carers looking for a school for their child.

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 and we recently won an award for our anti-bullying strategies. We pride ourselves on meeting each student’s individual needs, which was also recognised by Ofsted.
