Badminton School boasts first class educational facilities. Our first priority is naturally to our own pupils, but there are certain times of the week and the year when some of our facilities are available for hire.
The School also makes some of its facilities available on a free of charge basis in connection with its “public benefit” activities. The Board of Governors recognises its responsibilities under charity law and seeks opportunities to provide a wider public benefit where this is possible. This means that, in addition to the School’s programme of means-tested bursaries for individual pupils, there are occasions when the astro pitch or swimming pool are made available to local schools without charge or whole classes of children from neighbouring schools are welcomed in to join our pupils for a Science Day or a Languages Day. Commercial hire opportunities are largely limited to School holidays, as term time is extremely busy.
If you would like to enquire about availability, please contact the PA to the Bursar on 0117 905 5281 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Facilities for hire include:
25m Indoor Swimming Pool
Perfect for swimming lessons, recreational swimming, aqua aerobics, canoeing, life guard training and swimming clubs. We have no space in our pool timetable to accommodate requests for regular sessions at present, but do try us if you are looking for a single hire. We regret that we are unable to accommodate parties or similar events.
This beautiful hall, which seats up to 250 people, can be hired for conferences, as a performance space or dance hall.
Full size, All Weather Astro Pitch
An ideal venue for hockey clubs and as an athletics venue. The specialist nature of the playing surface means that it is not suitable for football.
Tennis and Netball Courts
The school has seven outdoor tennis courts and four netball courts for hire by clubs and private coaches.
The gym is marked out for volleyball and badminton. The gym can also be used for sports such as fencing, aerobics, judo, self defence, dance, basketball and yoga.
Junior School Hall
This is a smaller, intimate space, seating about 30 - 100 people, used in the past for yoga, pilates and small presentations and seminars.
Music rooms and performance space
A series of small, sound-proof practice rooms, all equipped with pianos, ideal for teaching and small music groups. Upstairs a larger performance space with excellent acoustics is ideal for intimate chamber music activities.
Badminton School has been used on occasions as a wedding venue as Northcote House, a Grade Two listed stately home with beautiful gardens, provides the ideal backdrop. Of course, we are not a commercial wedding venue and we do not pretend to offer facilities on the scale of mainstream venues, but we can offer once or twice a year a personalised and tailored service for smaller or medium-sized wedding parties. We are a favourite venue for Old Badmintonians who are tying the knot! The large 160 seater dining room is ideal as a reception and can be included in larger bookings. Our on-site first class caterers have an extensive range of imaginative menus and work with our clients to provide attractive and tasty food at a reasonable price. Because each event is different, we do not publish a standard tariff for weddings, but would ask you to enquire in the first instance about availability of your chosen date.
Whole Site Rental
The whole site is used currently by a series of educational establishments such as language schools and sports camps.
