About Badminton School
Badminton School is an independent day and boarding all-girls school in Bristol, England. The school was founded by Mrs. Miriam Badock in 1958 in an effort to provide girls with the same quality of education as their brothers. The school celebrates its 150 year heritage, and prides itself on achieving the perfect balance between old traditions and new practices and facilities.

Badminton’s values centre “on a culture of mutual respect and tolerance, underpinned by a strong sense of integrity [and] . . . above all . . . a good sense of fun!”

Why is it so popular?
Badminton’s prime location and facilities make the school a popular destination for many students. Located in Bristol, Badminton enjoys the safety and beauty of a college town, and the accessibility of London.

The site also includes an indoor swimming pool, a recent extension to the Sixth Form Centre, a Music School, a Creative Arts Centre, an all-weather pitch and Fitness Centre, and a newly renovated Bartlett House for Junior Boarders.

How do I know if Badminton is right for me?
Badminton School is hosting four Open Mornings and one Open Evening that will begin this fall and continue into next spring. These events will allow you and your daughter to tour the school, meet students and staff, and experience Badminton’s culture firsthand.

The Open Evening for Sixth Form students is on 30th September 2016, and the first Open Morning for the whole school is on 8th October 2016. Individual visits can also be requested here.

Admissions Policy
Admissions for Badminton School require that you pay a £50-100 registration fee (see Fees section above) and complete a 10 minute online survey or download and return a 10 minute paper survey on behalf of your daughter. Your daughter must also sit for several examinations, about which you can read more below.

What Badminton School interviews and examinations are like, and top tips for doing well
If possible, Badminton asks that all girls book a visit prior to sitting their entrance exams or papers to get to know your daughter a little better.

Senior girls will then be asked to allow for two days to sit English  and Maths entrance exams, and an online adaptive test one year prior to their date of anticipated entry.

Sixth Form girls will also need to allow two days, one year before their anticipated entrance, to write entrance papers in two A-level subjects of their choice, as well as a general English paper.

Badminton has a policy against releasing previous papers, but your daughter may still benefit from practicing verbalizing her interests, skills and co-curriculars, work shopping with other essay and exam resources, and/or meeting with a Badminton Entrance tutor.

Best of luck!
