Student LeadershipCompassionate Leadership and Change-Makers
Throughout their school life, students at Godolphin and Latymer are encouraged to take a lead on issues that matter to them; there is a real emphasis on developing girls’ ability to lead and make things happen. In addition to our Head Girls Team, Student Council, and House, Debating, Music, Theatre, Technical, Art and Design, Games and Sports Captains, there are a number of student-led committees that play an important role in planning and running school activities and that help shape and develop the culture and ethos of our school.
At the beginning of the academic year, Upper Sixth students in positions of responsibility undertake a full day of leadership development to help them, as people and as teams, work towards producing their desired outcomes for the year. In 2023 we were lucky enough to partner with Isar Bhattachrjee, an organisational psychologist and founder of Uncover Consulting, and the girls spent the morning on various immersive activities.
Social Impact Committee
Launched in 2020, the Social Impact Committee aims to create partnerships with charities, to fund raise, and raise awareness within the school community.
The Sustainability Committee was also launched in Autumn 2020 and aims to encourage the Godolphin community to take action to improve environmental sustainability in our school, local community and beyond. The committee secured funding from the PTFA for the G&L Allotment which they have cultivated with help from the Premises Team.
The Diversity Committee had its launch assembly in April 2021 and it aims to get the school community talking about a whole range of topics on the theme of diversity and to ensure that students can openly discuss their backgrounds and identities without the fear of being judged or misunderstood. The student committee is looking at ways to help incorporate more diversity in our curriculum and conversations, to ensure that pupils are learning about other cultures, religions, histories, genders, sexual identities and more.
