Badminton School

Our Governors

The Governors of Badminton bring expertise from a wide range of professional, commercial and academic backgrounds. Governors take a close interest in School and enjoy attending events and celebrating the successes of the girls and staff.

Badminton is a registered charity, and the Governors of the School are also trustees of that charity. There is a single board of Governors covering both the Senior and Junior Schools. Day-to-day management of both schools is delegated by the Governors to the Senior Management Team, led by the Headmistress.

The Board of Governors meets at least once each term, and it also appoints committees to examine specific areas of the School’s activities and to provide advice and recommendations to the whole Board. 

The Chairman of Governors, Mr Bill Ray, may be contacted via:
