Partnerships & CommunitySharing and building relationships

We’ve had sixth formers complete A levels at our neighbouring private schools, Godolphin and Latymer... in subjects we don’t offer ... this is real partnership, not window dressing for their websites

It is part of our ethos and grammar school heritage to nurture a strong sense of service and communal responsibility, and our Partnerships and Community programme supports our aim to encourage students “to become considerate, compassionate and courageous young women who fully expect to take active responsibility for the community and the environment in which they live”.

Strong partnerships are mutually beneficial, and while our staff and students widen their experience and learn valuable life skills, we seek to share our resources, activities and facilities with other organisations and look to build and strengthen impactful projects.

The ISC Schools Together website celebrates and encourages partnership projects between independent schools, maintained schools and local communities and Godolphin and Latymer has a wide range of projects listed.

Testimonial

The children (and teachers) greatly benefit from having such kind, passionate reading volunteers, and is a time of the week that the children have an opportunity to read 1:1 with someone. Primary schools are busy places, but having some time set aside to read aloud is incredible, and really helps to boost the child’s confidence in reading, but more importantly nurture a love for reading. We have been very lucky in the past to have many girls from Godolphin and Latymer volunteer with us, and we hope this partnership can continue in the future.
