The emphasis at Badminton is on a holistic education, not narrowly academic, and both the curriculum and the timetable are constructed to create a balance between academic achievement, personal development, life skills and other enterprising activity.
Games & The Arts
The outstanding Creative Arts Centre provides girls with the inspiration and facilities to excel in the various mediums of art. Music is a large part of School life with countless opportunities to perform and develop. Sports and wellbeing is an important part of the School day. The new Sports Centre, which opened in October 2018, provides girls with top of the range facilities on site. With wide ranging activities from sporting performance pathways through to community and relaxation events, girls have a large number of opportunities to get involved.
The size of the campus and community at Badminton gives a homely and vibrant feel to the School. This, coupled with excellent pastoral care, leaves no scope for anonymity, but rather lends itself to strong mutually supportive relationships between girls as well as between girls and staff. At Badminton, we wish every girl to feel happy and confident about her school life. We work to ensure a well ordered and supportive environment where we ask the girls to take responsibility for themselves and others. This gives them opportunities to face challenge and build resilience.
Head Teacher’s Philosophy
At Badminton, our focus continues to be on nurturing the girls’ 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 in the school and the holistic approach to education.
While Badminton retains a nationally outstanding academic record, the community gives girls a chance to develop an understanding of the viewpoints of others and to think about contributing to the world around them. Girls leave Badminton ready to face the changing and challenging wider world and, when they do, they take with them a strong network of lifelong friends developed through a wealth of shared experiences.
