What says..

Masses of activities on the timetable, loads out of it and if that’s not enough, girls are encouraged to grow their own, many groups run by sixth form, some with staff moderators. We saw flyers for open platform club’s next meeting - ‘Are good people also capable of evil?’ - as well as a call for musicians to audition for a mystery new band.  ‘Teachers are really good at tailoring how they teach lessons and how they format them,’ said pupil.

What the school says...

Godolphin and Latymer is a modern, innovative and forward-thinking school where quality teaching inspires
bright girls and fosters independent thought and learning. The school takes pride in its longstanding reputation for academic excellence, but there is so much more to life at G&L. Individual talents are nurtured and championed, with students encouraged to develop their passions, take responsible risks and to embrace challenges. The wide school curriculum – including both A level and IB options at Sixth Form - coupled with an outstanding range of extra-curricular activities, provide numerous opportunities for pupils to engage in school life and pursue their particular interests.
The ethos is simple: every girl matters. Personalised support is the cornerstone of the approach. Students are encouraged to speak, share, listen and flourish both within the school community and beyond. With dedicated support and guidance from teaching and pastoral staff, girls have outstanding opportunities to grow and develop into considerate, compassionate and courageous young women.

A big cheese in the Girls’ School Association and HMC (she prefers the more modest ‘highly regarded’), she has two children, one at school, one at uni.

Could, like husband, have spent life in academia but recognised that her interest in ‘big ideas and movements’ would be better served by school teaching. ‘I did it and loved it.’ Varied days inevitably dominated by meetings of one sort...
