About Us Godolphin and Latymer

Godolphin girls are warm, lively and grounded in the real world, achieve excellent GCSE, A Level and IB results, but wear their academic credentials lightly. A wide curricular and extra-curricular programme enriches student life and ensures each individual girl can reach her potential and pursue her interests and passions.

We are an academically selective day school for girls aged 11-18; girls sit the London 11+ Consortium entrance examinations and in the Sixth Form can choose to pursue the IB or A Level pathway. At Godolphin, girls freely exchange ideas and opinions and pursue leadership opportunities and positions of responsibility, without any perceived limits or stereotypes. Our pastoral care ensures that each individual girl is known and supported with initiatives that encourage risk-taking, resilience and a belief that nothing is beyond her reach or aspiration.

Girls shine as artists, actors, musicians, sportswomen, scientists, entrepreneurs, Arkwright Engineering Scholars, debaters, Gold DofE achievers, Ogden Trust Physics Ambassadors, Amazon HQ App Designers, Biology Olympiads, Green activists and community volunteers. Indeed, a culture of community service permeates the whole school and is underpinned by strong partnerships with local schools and community programmes. In 2018 we launched the Social Impact Awards to encourage students to develop their own sustainable Social Impact projects.

We nurture a caring, diverse and inclusive community and our means-tested bursary programme allows us to provide fee assistance for talented girls who otherwise wouldn’t be able to come to the school and who, in turn, enrich school life with their energy and inspiration.

Our girls step into the world with places at their first-choice universities: remarkable, respectful and courageous young women who are armed with the talents and ambition to succeed, wherever life takes them.

Parents love Godolphin and Latymer not just for the academic success it brings their daughters, but for the school’s holistic approach to their education in the broadest sense.
