I started at Badminton in Year 9 as a Boarder which was a completely new experience for me, although now as a Sixth Form student I cannot believe it has been that long! I really have grown up at Badminton

Badminton is a boarding school, and it’s one where over half the pupils are Day Girls. It might sound like an unusual mix, but it works brilliantly. Day Girls tell us how much they like the fact that the school doesn’t ‘empty out’ at the evenings and weekends, and they will often choose to spend regular or occasional nights in boarding or will come in at weekends to complete prep, continue with coursework or just enjoy some time with their Boarding friends. Boarders enjoy the independence of living away from home alongside the comfort that comes from being with a community of friends. Boarding life means there is time for many more activities than in a day school and weekends are packed full of things to do for both Boarders and Day Girls.
We offer full, weekly and occasional boarding so that parents and girls can find the balance that suits them best. We pride ourselves on our outstanding pastoral care which was identified by Inspectors in our recent ISI Inspection who assessed and awarded the quality of our boarding as “Excellent”. However, the best way to truly experience what it’s like to be a Boarder at Badminton is to join us for a taster night. Just be warned, you may not want to go home!
