There was a lot of excitement this morning as the new Shells arrived for their first day. Welcome to Bablake!


Pupils acheived exceptional GCSE results yesterday! 54% of all grades were 8 or 9 (equivalent of A*s) and 74% were 7, 8 or 9 (equivalent of A*/A). 60 pupils achieved all grade 7s or above.

We could not be prouder of this year group, or more pleased for them. They have dealt with the extraordinary circumstances affecting their education with good grace and resilience, and they richly deserve these results.

Thanks to all staff and parents who have pulled together to support them during the last few interesting years. More details can be found on the school's website.
