Word From The Head

Head Photo

Jessica Miles, Headmistress

It is a privilege and joy to be the new Headmistress at Badminton - a vibrant environment with outstanding teaching and learning where the girls achieve excellent results because they are nurtured and encouraged within a calm and supportive community that promotes self-confidence, self-belief and a can-do attitude.

Academic excellence is a given, but we also give individuals the opportunity to shine in extra-curricular achievements. Your daughter will have the opportunity to explore music, art, drama and outdoor pursuits, with a vast array of concerts, theatre performances, expeditions and trips running throughout the year. She will have the freedom to take personal responsibility, to think for herself and to understand service to the community as we prepare her for an exciting future.

Badminton is a daily reminder that a good school can embed the attitudes and attributes for a fulfilling future.​ I hope this will give you a glimpse of all the wonderful things that take place here, but I would encourage you to visit us and gain a first-hand impression of the school and its spirit.

I hope that I will have the opportunity to meet you and show you everything that is achieved by the girls within our beautiful school.

    School Reviews

    School Parent

    My daughter made me choose Badminton! She came home buzzing from her Taster Day and said that she really, really wanted to go. We were attracted by the small class sizes, a welcoming Headmistress and the way our daughter was treated as an individual.  

    Mollie, Upper Sixth

    At Badminton, I am constantly inspired by my peers and teachers and love being a member of a community that cares.  

    Amelia, Year 7

    I made friends quickly and feel like I have been at the School for years  

    Ayaka, Year 9

    All the girls made me feel welcome and as if I had been at the School for years before  

    Scarlett, Year 9

    I knew by the end of the tour that this was somewhere I wanted to be  

    Lisa, Upper Sixth

    You might think that boarding school is a sheltered life, but not at Badminton.
