Badminton School ranked fourth in the Top Independent Secondary Schools

Pupils at Badminton School

The Times Parent Power Schools Guide has just released the definitive ranking of schools in the UK for 2022 and Badminton came top of five Bristol schools to feature in the Top of Independent Secondary Schools in the southwest, and fourth in the southwest as a whole

The performance tables, based on pre-pandemic examination outcomes from 2017-19, rate schools on the proportions of A-level A-B grades and the GCSEs at grades A/A or 9-7, with outcomes for the senior exam double-weighted.

Badminton places importance on great intellectual curiosity, with the emphasis on a holistic education. Both the curriculum and the timetable are constructed to create a balance between academic achievement, personal development, life skills and other enterprising activity. Pupils can discover and develop not only their academic strengths but all their other talents via the wide-ranging extracurricular programme.

Mrs Rebecca Tear, headmistress, said: “It is always a pleasure to see great outcomes for our pupils and I am hugely grateful to the whole team at Badminton who have supported their journey. The deep engagement with learning through our metacognitive approach and hands on practical application will have enabled this, but also will have embedded skills as lifelong learners with a genuine curiosity for the world around them, which will be a strong asset for their future.”
