The Potential to Succeed, with the Joy of Discovery
Class sizes are small, with about 24 pupils
in each class in the Key Stage 3 years (11-14).
For some of the creative and technology
subjects, classes are divided into two. Beyond
Key Stage 3 (GCSE and A Level) numbers in
subject groups are lower. This adjustment
in class size reflects the changing demands
of the curriculum and guarantees that our
pupils gain personal care and attention from
experienced and committed teachers.
amply reflects the importance
of an understanding of our own and others'
cultures. A purpose-built languages block
emphasises our commitment to the teaching
of modern languages (including French,
German, Spanish and Chinese) and classical
languages and civilisation.
All pupils have opportunities to take part in exchange holidays and other foreign visits. Bablake has
a nationally acclaimed weather station which
is run jointly by staff and pupils, and visits to
historical, geographical and classical sites at
home and abroad enrich our pupils' education.
