 The school wholeheartedly fulfils its aims to inculcate strong moral values, to emphasise the value of individual integrity and the importance of equality of opportunity, to encourage its pupils to respect all faiths and to prepare them for life in a global society. The distinctive climate and ethos of the school sets the scene for pupils to grow and flourish so that they become confident, articulate, outward-looking individuals who appreciate their own worth and that of others.”

 

“The curriculum supports effectively the school’s aims to provide an
enriching and holistic experience in which high levels of achievement in the arts, sport and extra-curricular activities complement intellectual development, academic success and pastoral care.”

 

 “Pupils’ attitudes to learning are excellent. They approach their work with enthusiasm and are very focused in their individual tasks.”

 

"Badminton Junior School is highly successful in meeting its aims of providing an education which nurtures intellectual curiosity
and which is challenging, and fun." 

 

“From the EYFS onwards, pupils’ achievement
and progress are excellent and they attain high standards
in their academic work.” 

“The school’s excellent curriculum is lively and exciting, stimulating the pupils and making them want to learn.” 

 

Headmistress of Badminton School, Mrs Rebecca Tear, has commented on the results of this inspection and says; “Myself, the Governors and the staff at Badminton are extremely pleased with the outcome of this inspection. The report confirms the inspectors discovered what is unique about Badminton, underpinned by the positive, passionate and supportive responses from the girls and parents in the ISI questionnaire.

We continue to go from strength to strength and I look forward to ensuring this continues.”
