Our values

Bablake has been nurturing children since 1344, and our 3-18 education is characterised by high expectations, rich opportunities and a mutually supportive community.

We aim to develop character, intellect and wellbeing within a happy, scholarly and caring community, and to educate and inspire young people so that they may lead full and responsible lives and shape a better world.

We are committed to providing opportunities in which pupils can achieve more than they imagined possible. We achieve this rich, broad and stimulating education by balancing four strands: Pastoral Care; Academic Excellence; Co-curricular Enrichment; and Community Service.

Our values

We ask everyone at Bablake to live by our values and, by doing so, our community will be diverse, tolerant, kind, sustainable, supportive and aware of the world around us.



We take responsibility for our actions, our studies and our role in society. We do what we say we will. We act before being asked and consistently deliver.

We prepare thoroughly for all tasks. We use our resources responsibly, developing and caring for the environment around us. We are committed to promoting peace and reconciliation.

We encourage autonomy in all and seek leadership. We acknowledge and seek to resolve problems.



We are curious to other perspectives and value every individual. We foster relationships through compassion and empathy.

We reflect on our actions and our studies. We are resilient and understand failure as an intrinsic part of success.

We look for better ways of doing things and aim for excellence in all we do.



We have a deep regard for each other and celebrate our diversity through an understanding of our shared values and traditions.

We encourage individuals to stand up for what they believe in and to celebrate their individuality. We act with honesty, integrity and kindness.

We believe we can positively impact our school and local community, challenge prejudice and foster peaceful relationships.

Peace and reconciliation

While rooted in a Christian foundation and ethos, Bablake embraces pupils of varied beliefs and backgrounds, valuing the cultural and social diversity that defines its distinctive character. This inclusive approach is a cornerstone of the School’s strength and identity.

Bablake is an International Cross of Nails School linked to the community of the Cross of Nails at Coventry Cathedral. We’re committed as part of our life and ethos to the mission of the city of Coventry: peace and reconciliation.

At Bablake we are committed to promoting these values:

  • in our own lives, as we seek to be at peace with ourselves.
  • in our attitude to others, as we seek to live at peace with our neighbours.
  • in our life as a school community, as we seek to resolve conflict and reconcile our differences.
  • in our curriculum, as we seek to deepen our awareness and understanding of the world beyond school.
  • in our service to the local and national community, as we seek to build links and work in partnership with others.
  • in our commitment to social justice and peace, as we seek to eradicate injustice and conflict.
  • in our international links, as we seek to promote mutual support and understanding which transcends boundaries of faith, culture, race and gender.
