About Babington House School

Babington House School is an independent day school in Chislehurst, Kent for pupils aged 3 to18 years. We select children on their academic ability and potential, as well as personal qualities. Once at Babington, they are expected to surpass their own expectations and we achieve excellent results. Babington House has high standards of behaviour, dress and conduct, benefiting from small class sizes of no more than 20 pupils and a strong sense of community. We are committed to outstanding sport, music, drama, and the arts and offer a vast array of extra-curricular opportunities.

Admissions Process

We are happy to admit girls and boys at any age and any time during the academic year, provided we have space and they fulfil our entry criteria.  Our starting point is the recognition that every child is unique and that your child is special. Like you we want him or her to be happy and successful.

We are flexible with our admissions arrangements and always try our utmost to do what is best for the child in any given circumstance.

We also try to make it as friendly and fun as we can so that we, and you as parents, can work out whether your son or daughter would thrive here.  We talk to your child and read their most recent school report, we also discuss the application with you.  Our academic tests, which involve some Maths and English, are usually carried out during a 'taster' day which is booked in at a time to suit your convenience.

In these respects we offer an alternative to the restrictive and more rigid entry procedures of some other schools.
