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.

Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.
