What the school says...
Badminton School is a thriving independent day and boarding school for girls aged 3-18, which has remained at the forefront of girls education for well over 150 years. Set within a campus of beautiful buildings and pleasant gardens in the city of Bristol, the School has an enviable sense of community which is felt the moment you step inside the gates. With a consistently outstanding academic record coupled with excellent pastoral care, Badmintons 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.
The best way to understand the School and to enjoy its atmosphere is to come and visit. We will look forward to welcoming you and your daughter to Badminton. ...Read more

Special Education Needs
We do not have many children with special needs. The only ones we have are either dyslexic pupils where we do one to one mentoring and work with the Bristol Dyslexic Centre in more extreme cases and gifted pupils which again have one to one mentoring. Nov 09.
