Visits and TripsDiscover and Explore
Educational visits are an intrinsic part of Godolphin life and a wide range of trips are organised during the course of the academic year to enrich cultural awareness, extend academic boundaries, support personal development and embrace exciting opportunities. We are lucky to have so much culture and inspiration here on our doorstep, though many students also enjoy challenge and adventure further afield.,
Many of our students take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Awards scheme at the Gold, Silver and Bronze level which have recently included expeditions to the Chilterns, New Forest and Brecon Beacons. The Year 10 Bonding Trip to Swanage helps support girls building new friendships and resilience as they embark on their GCSEs. Residential trips also include an annual ski trip and a historical trip to the World War One battle fields in France and Belgium. Cultural and language trips take our students overseas to France, Germany, Greece, Spain and Italy. Geographers also spread their wings enjoying the stunning landscapes of Norway, Margam Discovery Centre in Wales and Flatford Mill in the Constable country. The sports department organises a number of residential tours that give the girls a chance to play against different opposition; trips have included Somerset, Shropshire and Northern Ireland and Holland.
Day trips within easy reach of London include the Burnham Beeches, Fishbourne Palace, Oxford, Cambridge and the Amersham Field Centre. There are regular theatre and concert trips to London venues and the school makes good use of London museums and galleries to augment teaching. Recent visits have included the National Gallery, Wetland Centre, Olympic Park, National Army Museum, London Zoo and The Globe Theatre.
