What the school says...

Godstowe is a happy and thriving preparatory school for girls aged 7 to 13, approximately a third of whom are boarders. We also have a lively Pre-Prep and Nursery for girls and boys aged 3 to 7. Godstowe is well known for setting the highest possible standards and enjoys an enviable reputation. We believe that we are the best at what we do and would very much like to have the chance to show you why we are so proud of Godstowe. Given the chance, children flourish here, in and out of the classroom.

We can provide an outstanding preparation for senior school and are always mindful of the fact that just as important as what girls know will be what they are like. Enjoyment, at Godstowe, is compulsory. Don't take our word for it; come and see for yourself. You will be made to feel very welcome.

David Gainer, Headmaster
