About Badminton School

Mission statement

“To provide an education which nurtures intellectual curiosity, and which is challenging and fun, balancing academic excellence with fulfilment of individual potential in the arts, sport and co-curricular activities.”


Badminton School is proud of its academic excellence and the exam results that its students achieve. In 2022, 80% of GCSE grades were in the A* - A range, and 32% of pupils achieved straight A - A* grades. The school is pioneering a GCSE+ approach, where students choose extracurricular options to complement their core GCSE choices. At A Level, 73% of girls achieved three A - A* grades, with over a quarter of students gaining A* grades.

Activities & sports

Badminton school has a variety of clubs and co-curricular activities as the school believes in the benefits of a well-rounded education. These activities include music, Global Thinking Skills, Model UN, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, drama, art and dance among many others. The students’ ability to explore their interests allows them to better discover and understand themselves so that they are ready to embrace the wider world as young adults.

International student community

Badminton School has a truly international outlook, with students from over 35 countries making up most of the boarding population. This makes the school a truly diverse and inclusive place to study as students and staff are constantly exposed to new ideas and life experiences that promote critical thinking, tolerance and acceptance. This ensures students are ready to enter the modern working world.

Boarding life

Badminton School offers three boarding houses, divided by age group so that the girls learn and grow with others their own age. As students mature, they gain more freedom and privileges; for example, the Sixth Form house allows students to return to the house during the school day, an option that is not available to younger students. The outstanding pastoral care at the school ensures that the girls get the best support possible throughout their education, whilst developing self-care and resilience skills, which are essential for life after school.
