The Curriculum

The emphasis at Badminton is on a holistic education, not narrowly academic. The curriculum and timetable are constructed to create balance between academic achievement, personal development, life skills and extra-curricular activities.

Games & The Arts

The Creative Arts Centre provides pupils with the inspiration and facilities to excel in the various mediums of art. Music, wellbeing and sports are a large part of school life. Wide ranging activities mean pupils can really get involved. 

Pastoral Care

The campus and community at Badminton gives off a homely, vibrant feel. Coupled with excellent pastoral care the school lends itself to strong mutually supportive relationships between pupils and staff. We wish every pupil to feel happy and confident. Working to ensure a well ordered and supportive environment, we ask pupils to take responsibility for themselves and others. This gives them opportunities to face challenge and build resilience.

Recent Scholarships

Awards and scholarships are available to pupils with particular talents.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

At Badminton, our focus continues to be on nurturing pupils’ natural curiosity and fuelling their passion for learning. We believe in practically engaging with the subjects and really getting under the skin of them. The enduring excellence that Badminton girls achieve stems from the positive atmosphere and holistic approach to education.

Outstanding Characteristics

While Badminton retains a nationally outstanding academic record, the community gives pupils a chance to develop an understanding of the viewpoints of others and to contributing to the world around them. Pupils leaving Badminton are ready to face the wider world and take with them a network of lifelong friends.
