Head's Welcome

It is simply a privilege to lead Godolphin. On a daily basis, I am struck by the ‘can do’ attitude of our students and the dedication of our staff. At the heart of Godolphin is a strong and unified community that incorporates our current girls from 3 – 18, our parents and staff and our impressive alumnae. Opportunities abound within this tight knit community where girls are valued as individuals and encouraged to develop their own opinions. Personal ambitions can be forged and talents discovered in an environment that celebrates the importance of a holistic education and where service to others is central to our values. Intellectual curiosity and physical challenge go hand in hand with creativity and mental wellbeing as we strive to provide our girls with a broad skill set that can prepare them for life beyond school.

Godolphin is a remarkable school that has been educating young women for almost three centuries. We are proud of this extraordinary heritage. Our Founder, Elizabeth Godolphin, worked tirelessly to convince the establishment of the value of educating girls. She believed in the importance of women being able to hold their own in a world that was quite unforgiving. Today we continue to uphold her ethos by providing a broad and innovative curriculum that includes a bespoke learning programme for our younger students and a transferable skills programme for our Sixth Formers. Like Elizabeth Godolphin we have a clear and exciting vision for the future that encompasses all aspects of the school and aims to empower the young women we seek to educate.

I hope you find this website a useful starting point. This really is a very special place to live and work and I would encourage you to come and visit, meet the staff and spend some time getting to know us. Whatever your daughter may be interested in, I guarantee she can find something at Godolphin to excite and inspire her.
