Welcome to Baston School

Baston is a small, traditional, non-selective independent day school, located in south-east England, on the outskirts of Bromley, close to bus routes, stations and central London. The school offers continuity of high quality education for girls aged from two-and-a-half to sixteen and currently comprises around 150 pupils.
We aim to provide a full academic and practical education in a vibrant, happy and supportive environment. This web site is designed to give you a glimpse of life at Baston School, as well as an indication of our curriculum and facilities. We hope it will encourage you to visit us, to meet our staff and pupils and see for yourselves what we have to offer.

Founded in 1933, Baston School grew rapidly to accommodate around 100 pupils prior to the Second World War. During the war the school was evacuated, first to Hope Cove in Devon and then to Galhampton in Somerset.

Baston returned to its present location in 1945.
 During the post-war years, the school again increased its size and continually improved its facilities to reach the high standard of education and accommodation it offers today.


Baston School is divided into three departments, catering for girls from 2˝ years old through to 16 years old.

VALUE-ADDED – BASTON IS TOP SCHOOL in Bromley for the third consecutive year.  In the annual league tables Baston, once again, was the top school in Bromley for pupil progress.  Under the government measures for value added which compare Key Stage 2 results (end of primary school) with GCSE performance these figures show that our girls make better academic progress than similar girls in any other independent or state school in the London Borough of Bromley.  Indeed, in the neighbouring boroughs of Bexley, Croydon and Lewisham and in the whole of Kent there are only two schools with a better value added index.  As a non-selective school this is particularly pleasing and demonstrates once again the value of small classes and excellent teaching.  Proof that Baston really is providing its girls with an education that is difficult to better in the surrounding area.

Instrumental tuition is available on the following instruments:
clarinet, flute, guitar, pianoforte, recorder, singing, violin.

Fees are due on or before the first day of each term. Fees unpaid after the first day will incur late payment surcharges and if any fees remain unpaid at the beginning of half term, the girl will be asked to leave the school until such time as any outstanding amount has been settled.
Arrangements can be made for the fees for the year to be paid in twelve monthly instalments and details of this procedure can be obtained from the school Bursar.
Every attempt is made to maintain the fee structure for the whole of an academic year and increases are kept to the minimum required to maintain our standards of teaching, class sizes and facilities.
A full term's notice is required before a pupil leaves the school or discontinues an extra subject. This notice, in writing, must be received on or before the first day of the term prior to any change being made, otherwise a term's fees in lieu must be paid. In the event of the suspension or expulsion of a pupil, there can be no refund of fees.

Several awards may be made to girls entering the Senior School at eleven plus, based on the results of the entrance examination and subsequent interviews which are held each year in January/early February. These awards are subject to an annual review depending upon the girls' performance in school.

The absence of a pupil from school does not lessen the cost of running the school. We regret, therefore, that it is not possible to refund fees if a pupil is away from school for any reason. We advise parents to take advantage of the school fees protection scheme. This enables parents subject to certain criteria to be reimbursed fees if a pupil is away from school due to sickness, accident or quarantine. The school also participates in private medical and personal accident schemes. Both the latter are operable during term time and the school holidays. The termly charge will be added to parents' accounts unless we receive written notification to the contrary.
All items of personal property that are brought to the school are the responsibility of the owner. Senior school girls are provided with secure lockers. The school accepts no responsibility for loss or damage to personal property and carries no insurance to cover such losses.
