About Badminton School

Badminton School is a thriving independent day and boarding school for girls aged 4-18, which has remained at the forefront of girls’ education for well over 165 years.

Located in Westbury-on-Trym on the leafy outskirts of the university city of Bristol, 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 school itself has an enviable sense of community, which is felt the moment you step through the gates. The size of the campus, our community and excellent pastoral care give a homely and vibrant feel to the school. The holistic approach ensures that the girls can discover and develop not only their academic strengths but all their other talents via the wide-ranging extracurricular programme.

With a consistently outstanding academic record coupled with excellent pastoral care, Badminton’s approach to the holistic education it provides is to broaden the girls’ skills, knowledge and attitudes to ensure they are curious and confident. Badminton girls are characteristically thoughtful individuals who are understanding of the viewpoints of others and who leave school ready to face the changing and challenging wider world and thrive in a global society.

WHY WORK AT BADMINTON?

The aim at Badminton is to encourage the pupils to become curious, confident and enthusiastic learners within a community that is supportive, friendly and fun! Awareness of responsibility is cultivated and the community code of conduct makes pupils aware that other people matter. The pupils’ mutual respect and support for not only their peers, but also for the whole community, goes right to the heart of the school’s ethos and this is also key for those that work here. We are proud of our staff and the contribution they make, and we do our very best to make everyone feel welcome from the start.

“The staff here are wonderful. A real team. They know and understand the girls and their needs and are totally supportive to each other. I felt completely welcome from day one.”
