Badminton is a thriving day and boarding school for girls, which has remained at the forefront of girls’ education for well over 150 years. We are enormously proud of our heritage and traditions, but are certainly not constrained by them. The size of the campus and community gives a homely and vibrant feel to the School. This, coupled with our excellent pastoral care, leaves no scope for anonymity, but rather lends itself to strong mutually supportive relationships between girls as well as between girls and staff. Whilst the school retains a nationally outstanding academic record, its focus continues to be on nurturing the girls’ natural curiosity and fuelling their passion for learning. Therefore, we select girls on their personal strengths and all round ability, as well as their academic potential. It is a characteristic of Badminton girls that they are thoughtful individuals, able to evaluate information and decide for themselves. This approach extends beyond their studies and into the day to day life of the School, where girls are given a wide range of opportunities to grow, develop and express themselves in an enormous range of activities. The best way to understand the School and to enjoy its atmosphere is to come and visit. Please do get in touch to arrange a visit and we will look forward to welcoming you and your daughter to Badminton.
