Pastoral Care


The happiness and welfare of the girls is paramount to everyone at Badminton. The key to our pastoral care is the size of the School and the emphasis we place on knowing each other well.

Nurturing a Secure Learning Environment

We understand that children learn best when they feel safe and supported. That's why we prioritize creating a secure and comfortable environment where every student knows they have adults they can trust. We take a proactive approach to addressing any concerns, ensuring they are handled promptly and with care. 


Personalized Support Throughout Their Journey 


Early Years (Years 1 & 2): Our Acorns classes provide a nurturing foundation. Class teachers offer personalized care and are the primary point of contact for both students and parents. 


Years 4-6: As students progress, they receive specialized instruction while maintaining a strong sense of community. Our vertical Form system connects students across year groups, fostering friendships and support networks. Each student has a dedicated Form Tutor who serves as a consistent point of contact for both the student and their family.

Making a Difference

We support charities like the local children's hospice and encourage student-led initiatives for causes they care about. Charity events, themed days, and student-organized fundraisers create a strong sense of purpose and empowerment.
