Badminton School

Why Bristol?

We are proud to be a Bristol school. Badminton’s site is larger and (we think!) more beautiful than that of many city schools, and yet we are just minutes from the centre of Bristol.

In 2017, Bristol topped the Sunday Times rankings of best places to live in Britain and was listed fourth in the Rough Guides’ top ten cities to visit worldwide. It is easy to see why. The city has charm and beauty, and is innovative in its culture and economy, drawing more and more families to move here from London. Bristol is the perfect place to be educated.

At Badminton, our mixture of old and new buildings is surrounded by glorious gardens that we love to use for alfresco learning, for playing and relaxing, and for community fetes and events. It’s a safe and welcoming campus. The girls here love it, and they are clear that one of the reasons they enjoy Badminton so much is Bristol. The city’s theatres, museums, galleries, street art, parks and shops are very much part of what makes a Badminton education so special. There is even a rumour that Sixth Formers have been seen heading en masse, coats over their onesies, to their favourite local cinema to enjoy a classic weekend movie or two…

It’s always a pleasure to welcome Bristolians to Badminton, whether you’re thinking of allowing us to educate your daughter or whether you just feel like coming to our Christmas Bazaar. Badminton wouldn’t be Badminton without Bristol.

We live in Bristol and I would say to local parents, pop in and see the school for yourself. A first class education that happens to be on our doorstep!
