Badminton is a vibrant, thriving and exciting day and boarding school for girls aged 3 – 18. We embrace and respect our 160 year heritage but pride ourselves on being progressive in an increasingly global society.
We push the boundaries on putting learning into action. Our students get to know more than a thin veneer of facts, they get to understand the how and why and, most importantly, if they enjoy engaging with their objects in a real world sense. Our focus is on nurturing the girls’ natural curiosity and fuelling their passion for learning. As a result, the School continues to hold a nationally outstanding academic record, affording us one of the top spots on the league tables. However, we find more pride in the individual successes of the girls; your daughter will be fully supported in whatever her talents or interests may be.
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.
What is special about Badminton? It is impossible to narrow it down to one thing but our unwavering sense of community is something that really needs to be experienced to be believed. We’re fortunate that the size of our campus and community gives an unparalleled homely feel to the School in which every girl is known by all. With over 35 nationalities represented within our close-knit community, girls develop an understanding of the viewpoints of others and an appreciation of the School’s international outlook. Our activity based approach means that from the moment you walk through Badminton’s gates, you are engulfed in its busy, buzzing and friendly atmosphere on campus. Visit us and discover Badminton for yourself.
