Bablake is, simply put, a remarkable school and one I feel enormously privileged to lead. It has a rich history and a vital present. Founded in 1344, our ethos has developed over many centuries and is based upon mutual respect, high expectations and support for one another. We combine a sense of history, community and role within Coventry with a dynamic and forward looking education and a determination to see each child achieve their full potential. This is a happy, caring and vibrant community and it is on this basis that pupils work hard and achieve so much.
We want our pupils to develop enquiring minds, find their passion and enjoy their time with us before going on to live fulfilling lives and make a difference to society. Our pupils’ examination results and achievements reflect our positive learning culture and we are consistently placed amongst the highest performing schools in the country.
Sport, Music, Drama and other co-curricular activities all play a major role in our school life and offer opportunities for everyone, from beginners to elite level performers. These activities develop excellence, educate pupils to be open minded, independent and willing to take risks. They also promote the core Bablake values of working with and for each other.
We are genuinely a co-educational school, committed to giving outstanding opportunities to both girls and boys, and to celebrate their diverse gifts.
This website provides no more than a fleeting encounter with Bablake. Please come to meet our pupils and staff, and to discover for yourself the purposeful, warm and inclusive atmosphere for which we are known. I invite you to attend our annual Open Morning or Evening, and we would be delighted to arrange a visit on a ‘normal’ school day.
I look forward to welcoming you.
