Introduction

Girls boarding school in Bristol! Great reputation!
Junior School

We believe that it is important that every child should benefit from a full and rounded education which will help prepare them for life after school. Whilst it is obviously crucial that girls are both numerate and literate, we also believe that they need to understand how the world around them works. Geography, Science and History lessons help us to provide this knowledge and they form an important part of the school curriculum. We do not believe in teaching subjects in isolation and we encourage the pupils to make links across subjects.  This cross-curricular awareness  is carefully considered during planning and topics are often linked between subjects.

All of our subjects are specialist taught, thus providing the pupils with an excellent standard of teaching. We have designed a languages taster programme which means that the girls study a different language every year starting with French in Year 3, then on to Latin in Year 4, German in Year 5 and Spanish in Year 6. These lessons are taught by specialist teachers from our Senior School and provide the girls with the opportunity to explore languages before deciding which ones they might like to pursue when they move on to the Senior School.

Our Maths lessons are streamed in order to enable us to provide the most appropriate level of support for every ability. In some cases, where there is a wider spread of ability, we may also stream for English.

ICT lessons take place on a weekly basis and these sessions provide the pupils with the basic skills which they may then develop and explore in other subjects (such as creating graphs in Geography or PowerPoint presentations  in History).

Art and Design Technology are taught in purpose built classrooms by specialist teachers and there are many opportunities throughout the school year when the girls are able to showcase their artistic talents.

Music is an important part of school life. It provides the girls with opportunities to perform and teaches them the disciplines involved with learning an instrument. Specialist music lessons start in Little Acorns and go right through to Year 6. All Junior pupils attend choir practice and hymn practice once a week: the singing is fantastic!

We think it is important that the girls take some form of physical activity every day (more oxygen to the brain improves learning) and our Games and PE lessons, including swimming, netball, hockey, tennis, gymnastics and dance take place daily on-site.

We seek to provide our pupils with a broad and balanced understanding of the world:  they enjoy weekly RE lessons in which they study the major world religions placed within a cultural context. PSHE also provides another element of this understanding and enables us to provide the girls with an awareness of how to cope with personal, social, safety and health issues.

The Junior School puts on a number of productions and performances throughout the school year and many of the skills which are showcased at these events are acquired during drama lessons which take place in the Junior School hall.

Senior School

At Badminton we aim to give all of our girls a first-class education in which intellectual development, academic success and pastoral care are complemented by high performance in the arts, sports and extra-curricular activities.

Central to our philosophy is a rich and holistic educational experience which fosters a love of learning and the setting of high standards. We encourage girls at Badminton to take responsibility for their own learning and develop skills such as independent thinking, self-analysis and reflection. Our aim is to provide an environment in which all our girls feel able to express themselves freely, to set high expectations for themselves and to be ambitious in all of their endeavours.  We encourage our girls to believe all is possible and that with hard work and determination they can achieve their full potential. We recognise that we have a responsibility to equip the girls with the necessary abilities and skills to prepare them not only for success in examinations but in their life more generally as they become part of a competitive and rapidly changing global community.

The curriculum at Badminton offers a broad and innovative academic education with a strong emphasis on developing an enquiring mind, instilling a good work ethic and striving for excellence. Activities are planned to promote the academic and personal development of the pupils. The curriculum is broadly balanced and seeks to give pupils the opportunities to be appropriately challenged. It is delivered through timetabled lessons as well as school trips, workshops, competitions and visiting speakers and seeks to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural and personal development of pupils.

The curriculum is extended through a wide variety of activities, societies, clubs, competitions, sport fixtures and trips. These are integral to the education offered at Badminton for example visiting art exhibitions in London, music concerts, science and engineering research, politics conferences, debating, law society and philosophy club. Lunchtime, tea time, prep and after school sessions are utilised for extra-curricular activities which are published in the termly calendar. Additionally, boarders have a programme of activities in the evenings and at weekends to which day girls are welcomed.
