Badminton welcomes new head

BADMINTON School has welcomed its new head teacher, Jessica Miles.

Justin Lewis, chair of governors, said: “Mrs Miles brings with her a wealth of experience in leading girls boarding and day schools having previously been Head of Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls and prior to that, Head of Queen Margaret’s School in York, as well as having held numerous senior leadership and teaching positions at some of the top independent schools in the country. 

“She is a fierce advocate of single-sex education, in particular for girls, and we were impressed by her strong alignment to Badminton’s vision and values.” 

Mrs Miles said:  “I am thrilled to have the great privilege of being the new head at Badminton; a school that has a remarkable history, a vibrant community, and at which girls know their individuality will be celebrated and their learning expanded far beyond the classroom. I look forward to stewarding this great school into the next chapter of its history.”

Established in 1858, Badminton is an independent boarding and day school for girls aged 4-18.
