Badminton School, its campus nestled in the leafy outskirts of the university city of Bristol, is an independent day and boarding school for girls aged 3 - 18.
We offer a holistic approach to education; to put it simply, we encourage our girls to get "hands on" with their subjects, ask questions and really get stuck in. Above all, learning is fun at Badminton and this, coupled with our homely community and excellent pastoral care, leaves no scope for anonymity. Your daughter will be known and fully supported in whatever her talents or interests may be. We often get asked what the characteristics of a Badminton girl are and the truth is, there is no one ‘type’! Badminton girls are treated like the individuals that they are; we inspire them to pursue their own interests and expand and explore their ambitions, both in their academic work and in co-curricular activities.
The School consistently achieves impressive academic results which enables the girls to access a wealth of world class universities, Music Conservatoires and Art Colleges but the real aim at Badminton is to encourage the girls to become curious, confident and enthusiastic lifelong learners.
We take full advantage of being situated in such an exciting, cosmopolitan city. Boasting two of the largest universities in the country, Bristol is well known for learning and academic achievement and Badminton girls benefit from attending university lectures and taking part in industry-run competitions, as well as participating in events run by the local business community for young people. All of this, alongside an enormous range of activities in School, ensure terms fly by before girls are safely escorted home to London and neighbouring airports.
The best way to understand the School and enjoy its enriching atmosphere and palpable sense of community is to come and visit. We look forward to welcoming you and your daughter to Badminton soon.
