What says..

That sense of academic seriousness, courage, confidence and an international outlook still prevail – girls here tackle any academic challenge head-on. Originally sited in Badminton House in nearby Clifton, it moved to its present premises on the edge of the downs in Bristol, arguably the greenest and most desirable part of the city. Girls greatly encouraged to take on all manner of academic challenges outside school; two girls were recently invited to go to a UK Mathematical Trust Olympiad training camp, out of only 22 youngsters in the country, and external essay prizes are frequently awarded...

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.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headmistress

Since 2012, Mrs Rebecca Tear (40s) BSc MA PGCE. Her degree in chemistry from Exeter preceded a career in teaching science almost exclusively to girls, and which included other significant responsibilities eg head of sixth form and deputy head at Wycombe Abbey, taking in a masters in leadership in education along the way. An unequivocal believer in single sex education from her early teaching practice, where she saw how the less confident girls needed bringing out in lessons, she says, ‘Teaching girls by themselves breaks down any preconceptions, barriers or stereotyping; when subjects don’t acquire masculine or feminine connotations, girls tend to make more realistic personal choices.’

Somewhat jolly hockey sticks in manner – she strode across the drawing room, extending a hand and introducing herself as ‘Bex’ - we...
