Published by Badminton School on Wednesday 19th of April 2023

The Board of Governors, staff and pupils of Badminton are delighted to be welcoming Mrs Jessica Miles as Headmistress of Badminton School from the beginning of the Summer Term, 2023.  Mrs Miles is currently Headmistress of Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls and previously Head of Queen Margaret’s School in York, and so brings with her a wealth of experience of leading girls' boarding and day schools. 


Jessica graduated from Oriel College, Oxford in Spanish and Linguistics and gained her PGCE from King’s College, London.


She has extensive teaching experience, initially as a Spanish teacher at Dulwich College where she taught for 13 years, working her way up to become Head of Spanish and Deputy Head of Upper School and was Mistress in charge of rowing.


From there, Jessica taught French and Spanish at Sherborne School and was also a boarding house tutor before moving to be Deputy Head and Head of Sixth Form at Leweston School in Dorset.


A passionate advocate of single sex education, in particular for girls, Jessica is “honoured and delighted to be joining Badminton School and is looking forward to getting to know the pupils, parents and staff over the coming weeks and months”.


Jessica will be moving to Bristol with her husband Paul and their youngest son Freddie. Charlie, their eldest son, is completing his A levels in Monmouth before furthering his studies at Madrid University.
