Ryan-Mark in Year 12 is studying English Literature, History and Politics. He said
“Babington House pushes you to do well, there is an expectation to always do your best and improve each time. I’m supported with my academic studies as well as outside the classroom; for example, I’ve had work experience at the Houses of Parliament, Matrix Chambers, American Internal Group and more. A friendly community of students, teachers and parents make this school unique to any other I’ve been to.”
“The small classes and the exceptionally supportive teachers have made the step-up from GCSE’s to A level a lot easier”, comments Jasmine in Year 12. “I won’t lie, the subjects I am taking are challenging but I am surrounded by people who have a drive for me to succeed, which is inspiring.”
“Babington House has offered me a range of opportunities, and the communication between staff and pupils is excellent. The small class sizes help you to focus and get extra help if needed. My time at Babington so far has made the transition from GCSE to A level so much easier, and I think this is very important when choosing a Sixth Form.” Chloe in Year 12 studying Maths, Further Maths, and Biology.
Pedro, a Year 12 Maths and Science student says, “Not only does the school provide great experiences outside of school, it also provides lots of chances during school – like the UK maths challenge and having your own society – it provides support to take part in anything you want to do.”
Florence in Year 13 is studying English, Maths and German. She said “I can honestly say Babington has been the best experience of my life. The staff and pupils are equally as friendly and willing to help, not just with academic issues, but personal too. I know that once I leave Babington (after 13 years!) I will be a well-rounded individual who is able to work both in a team and independently. The level of education at Babington is second-to-none, and I am sure that the skills I've developed will be called upon all through my life. The teachers here push you, but in a way that is constructive, and it really does make you work hard. I know that I wouldn't have reached the stage I am at now without the teachers' support and persistence.”
“It’s been good to have a change from an all boys’ school”, comments Ed in Year 13; “The move to a co-educational Sixth Form has enabled me to adapt to different situations and is preparing me for life at University and beyond. The work experience is a massive bonus and makes you learn faster and grow in confidence.”
