Creating A single educational establishment arranged across dedicated Prep and Senior Campuses

Welcome to our project website. This is where we will provide information, updates as well as opportunities to get involved while we develop our permanent website for the new school.

Bablake and King Henry VIII School will open in September 2021, starting the journey of bringing together the best of what our current schools do into a single educational establishment. 

You can read more about the benefits for your family here and see how you can get involved in various aspects of preparing for the new school here. We’ve also included a timeline and FAQs here.

Our carefully planned transition programme will make sure that exam years are not disrupted, and that we have time to make our ambitious planned improvements to both sites without impacting on your child's day to day school experience. 

Working with governors, staff, pupils and parents I will keep pupils at the heart of every decision made. Together we can combine the best of both Bablake and King Henry VIII ready to embark on the next chapter of our successful history.
