Badminton School is a vibrant and thriving boarding and day school for girls aged 3-18 with boarding from nine years old. The school is on the outskirts of the university city of Bristol, situated in the South West of England and only a 1.5-hour train journey west from London Heathrow.
The school respects its 160-year heritage and prides itself on being innovative and progressive in an increasingly global society. They encourage the girls to get 'hands-on' with their subjects, ask questions and apply their knowledge in a real-world context, not just answer textbook questions. Their focus is on nurturing the girls’ natural curiosity and passion for learning. As a result, Badminton School has an outstanding academic record.
All of the first-class facilities are situated on site. There is a creative arts centre, a fully equipped science centre and a music school with its own recording studio. The state-of-the-art sports centre opened in 2019 and offers a four-court hall, a cardio and resistance fitness centre, fencing piste, crickets nets, physiotherapy room and climbing wall. Additional sports facilities also include a 25-metre indoor heated swimming pool, international size AstroTurf pitch as well as tennis and netball courts.
Community lies at the school’s heart and drives everything they do. Their pastoral care is of the highest standard and aims to give that home from home feel. There are over 35 nationalities represented within their close-knit community with the majority of those boarding being international students and more than half of the sixth form pupils being boarders.
