What the school says...

Founded in 1344, Bablake School moved to its present urban site, set in 11 acres, approximately a mile from the city centre, with 40 acres of playing fields nearby, in 1890. Facilities include new science labs, a sports hall, astroturf pitches, swimming pool, theatre and digital language laboratory. There is a separate junior school, and a study centre in Normandy. The school has its own weather centre, recognised by the Met Office.

Built on a Christian foundation, we are non-denominational and welcome pupils of all beliefs. Academically strong, our examination results are very good. Drama is a key strength, as is debating in which the school regularly competes on a national level. We experience success at county and regional level in cricket, hockey, netball and rugby. There is keen participation in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme, CCF, including army and RAF units plus a vigorous programme of community service and charity fundraising.

Entrance examinations consist of the following: 11 English, Maths, Verbal and Non-verbal Reasoning. Sixth Form entry, GCSE results and reference from school. Guidelines sent out with prospectus and sample papers - pupils should be level 5 in KS2.
