Badminton School is an independent boarding and day school for girls aged 3 – 18 located on a secure campus on the outskirts of the university city of Bristol in the South West of England. The School takes an holistic approach to education and has inspirational teaching, a friendly, vibrant atmosphere and a strong emphasis on pastoral care. Badminton consistently achieves impressive academic results and is one of the top girls’ schools in the UK. Consistently high grades at A Level enables our girls to attend a wealth of top class Universities and Music Conservatoires across the world. Girls are encouraged to develop as individuals, to pursue their own interests and achieve their goals both in academic and extra-curricular activities, and not to be afraid of a challenge. We aim to create a community which is supportive and encouraging for all, in an environment in which each girl is valued and well known by all staff. The small community and small class sizes mean that we are able to focus on the girls as individuals. Girls are taught that other people matter; their respect and support for each other goes right to the heart of the School’s ethos.
