Head PhotoBadminton is a thriving day and boarding school for girls aged 3-18, 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. The enduring excellence that Badminton girls achieve, stems from the positive atmosphere in the school and the holistic approach to education, as well as the exceptional relationships between staff and pupils which are mature and friendly, based on principles of courtesy and mutual respect.

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 Badminton community gives girls a chance to develop an understanding of the viewpoints of others and to think about contributing to the world around them. Girls leave Badminton ready to face the changing and challenging wider world and, when they do, they take with them a strong network of lifelong friends developed through a wealth of shared experiences.

The best way to understand the School and to enjoy its atmosphere is to come and visit. Please do get in touch and we will look forward to welcoming you and your daughter.
