Badminton is a vibrant, thriving and exciting Boarding and Day School for girls aged 3-18, situated in the leafy outskirts of the University City of Bristol in the South West of England, only a 1.5 hours journey from London’s Heathrow International Airport.
We embrace and respect our 160-year heritage but we pride ourselves on being innovative and progressive in an increasingly global society.
We offer a holistic approach to education. We 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. Our focus is on nurturing the girls’ natural curiosity and fuelling their passion for learning. As a result, Badminton School has an outstanding academic record making us a one of the top schools in the UK. Having said that, we take more pride from the individual successes of the girls: every girl will be fully supported to reach her full potential in whatever her talents may be. Our pastoral care is of the highest standard.
All of our first-class facilities are situated on our site. There is an outstanding Creative Arts Centre, a fully equipped Science Centre and Music School with its own recording studio. Our State-of-the-art Sports Centre opened in the Spring of 2019 and offers a 4-court hall, a cardio and resistance fitness centre, fencing piste, crickets nets, physiotherapy room and climbing wall. Additional sports facilities also include a 25mtr indoor heated swimming pool, international size Astro Turf pitch as well as tennis and netball courts.
What is special about Badminton? It’s hard to narrow it down to a single thing but Community lies at its heart and drives everything. We are fortunately that are big enough to matter but small enough to care and give that home from home feel. With over 35 nationalities represented within our close-knit community, girls develop an understanding of others’ viewpoints.
