About Us


Badminton School, founded in 1858 by Mrs. Miriam Badock in the United Kingdom, aimed to provide girls with equal educational opportunities as their brothers, emphasizing the importance of education for women.


Badminton embraces a spirit of inclusivity, welcoming students of all backgrounds. The school's radical heritage, akin to pioneering Oxbridge colleges for women, fosters a culture of boldness and support. Embracing internationalism from its inception, Badminton welcomed students from abroad, offering a broad curriculum and emphasizing co-curricular activities, particularly in sports, uncommon for girls at the time.


Badminton School Korea is the first international branch of Badminton School, which originated in the UK. It will open as a co-educational institution, not an all-girls school, with plans to launch a primary school in August 2024 and a secondary school in August 2025.

 Core Focus on Literacy and Numeracy Literacy and mathematical skills are foundational to a child's success. We place a strong emphasis on these areas, tailoring our math instruction to meet individual needs while keeping students in mixed groups for other subjects.

 Technology and Creativity  ICT lessons equip students with essential digital skills and encourage them to use technology across their learning. Purpose-built classrooms allow for hands-on exploration of Art and Design Technology, with plenty of opportunities for students to showcase their work.
