Involved

‘Involved’ is the association of Junior and Senior School parents at Badminton School. The group has numerous aims: to create a supportive and welcoming parental community; to work with the School to enrich the girls’ experience at Badminton; raise funds for charitable purposes and provide a forum whereby parents can share their experiences and expertise with each other and the School through educational events and other wider committees.

The Involved Steering Group meets termly to plan and organise events for parents including social occasions that have recently included Wine Tasting, Barbeques and the spectacular annual Summer Ball that takes place at the end of the School year. Involved Parents are truly involved in the School; they assist with various School activities and events such as the Summer and Christmas community events, the biannual Careers Fair, the Badminton Boardroom and they co-ordinate the ‘Nearly New’ Uniform Shop.

One of the main passions of Involved is raising money for charity and for School enrichment projects: those exciting purchases beyond the School’s general spend. Involved has funded picnic benches, a giant chess set, bicycles for the Boarders, specialist chairs for music students and even equipment for an adventure playground, now fondly known as ‘The Rough Patch’, to name just a few.

Involved is open to all parents at Badminton and is a fantastic way to get involved in School life as much or as little as desired. It is a friendly and welcoming group that would be only too pleased to chat to and support new parents as they join the vibrant and inclusive Badminton community.
