The Programme

An ‘Introduction to British Boarding at Badminton School for Girls’ is a boutique, four-week course built around the great qualities of British Boarding Schools and is an excellent introduction for international students wishing to study at a UK Boarding School.


Badminton School is a highly-rated independent boarding school set in a secure and attractive 20-acre campus in Bristol, a vibrant, cosmopolitan university city. Bristol is one of the most popular cities in the UK in which to live and has the advantage of being only an hour and a half away from London by train and from Heathrow by road. 


Students will study intensive English language for at least 10 hours a week. English studies will not only be in the classroom, but also in workshops and during study trips. Students will also gain invaluable study skills by taking part in multi-disciplinary lessons in many other academic subjects.
