Additional Information

At Badminton, the staff, both academic and pastoral as well as all those in supporting roles, work to inspire ideas and develop curiosity in the pupils. The aim, of course, is to facilitate the girls’ access to the next step of their educational journey, but on the way, we hope that our holistic approach broadens their thinking and does not simply “fill them up” with knowledge. There is also plenty of opportunity to actually do things rather than just think about them; the girls actively engage with their subject material through research projects and community work, rather than just gathering paper qualifications. 

Badminton’s holistic approach, in which Creative Arts and Sports are integral to everyday life, means that from the moment you walk through the gates, the busy, friendly atmosphere surrounds you in all that is happening. It is wonderful to be a part of it and to capture the energy that the girls exude as they throw themselves into all they do. The broad range of activities ensures that everyone can find something that interests or challenges them and helps to develop them into the person they want to be. Other than being curious, outward looking and confident, there is no “Badminton type”; each girl is unique!
