Welcome from the Principal

Sara-Jayne Fletcher - Principal

I would like to warmly welcome you to the Babington Academy website. 

At Babington we are driven by a moral commitment to ensure that we make a profound positive difference to all who come through the school gates, and to ensure that our students and staff reach their full potential.  We work tirelessly to educate, support and inspire our community, thereby ensuring that everyone aspires to and, indeed, achieves success.  We are very proud of our diverse and inclusive school. 

Situated in North-West Leicester, we are a larger than average secondary school proudly serving students from across the city.  We support many schools locally, nationally and internationally and are proud that we have seven members of staff that are accredited as Specialist Leaders of Education. Graded as `outstanding' by Ofsted at our last inspection, we feel that we have continued on a trajectory of improvement since the inspection, celebrating significant improvements in outcomes, particularly over the last three years. 

We are designated as a Flagship School through the Inclusion Quality Mark.  This is an award which celebrates our inclusive ethos and provision, which is exemplified by our Designated Specialist Provision (DSP) for speech, language, communication and autism; we are proud of this provision and the range of other awards we have achieved, including recently being accredited with the World Class Education Quality Mark, the School Mental Health Award which is delivered by the Carnegie Centre of Excellence for Mental Health in Schools, and the National Online School Safety Award.

Whilst we are very proud of these awards and achievements, what makes us most proud are our amazing students and their achievements.  Our students leave Babington with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to thrive in a challenging and ever-changing world. 

We support our students to develop the Babington DNA ‘PROUD’ qualities which ensures our students leave us with the emotional and intellectual literacy and resilience that they need to be effective and active global citizens.  We strive for them to leave with qualifications which give them choices, alongside a desire to be life-long learners.  

I hope as you browse our website you will see why we are indeed, proud to be Babington.
