“When I first came across 'Badger' I knew we had to have it for Bedales. Badger is simple to use, straightforward to navigate and for an IT Dinosaur like me it is the best way of storing all the information you would ever want as a housemaster or mistress.
The best and most important aspect of the system is it puts the student at its heart. I no longer have to remember every goal scored or character acted, I know where to find absence records and what to write in my end of term reports thanks to Badger.
Bedales is known for its 'difference' and when we first started using the system Andrew and Nick were brilliant at giving us a truly 'bespoke' system. Their support has been invaluable and their friendly and prompt response to all of our requests has been much appreciated. At Bedales we have been lucky enough to pioneer the software, I cannot recommend it highly enough and cannot understand why you wouldn't want it in your school. ”

“Pupils live rich, varied and complex lives. Keeping track of the multiple strands of activity for every child poses a real challenge for Housemasters and Housemistresses but Badger can help by providing us with a wonderful pupil overview. Whether it is logging sporting activity, extracurricular music lessons, academic achievements, health issues, personal appointments or dietary requirements, Badger ensures all your admin for each pupil can be stored and accessed in one place. No more racking your brain for information, or hunting through diaries and filing cabinets to find various records on a pupil.”
Stuart Head, Housemaster, Epsom College
“When an inspector calls, the need is for evidence quickly and impressively for a range of pastoral questions. The solution is now simple - Badger.
To show complete awareness of matters major and minor across the School, to analyse trends and to show consistency of application, a couple of clicks and a few seconds are all that is required.
You then progress right to the heart of the information that you need to show that you have full oversight of the pastoral management of the School. It is also extremely effective for those everyday moments, such as the unexpected phone call or the meeting with a parent. I have no doubt whatsoever that this bespoke electronic system will revolutionize for you also the pastoral care management and set any school firmly on course for excellence.”

“Over the past 3 years we have found Badger to be an exceptional resource in our provision of excellent pastoral care. It helps provide consistency across our houses, gives easy access to pastoral information and it gives our house staff time back to spend with pupils, not locked in the office."
