The Godolphin and Latymer School
The Godolphin and Latymer School is a day school for 780 girls aged between 11 and 18. Built in 1861, the school became associated with the Latymer Foundation in 1905, taking the name of the Godolphin and Latymer School.
Pupils at G & L are encouraged to become rounded and grounded individuals who understand themselves as learners and as people. With dedicated support and guidance from teaching and pastoral staff, girls have outstanding opportunities to grow and develop. We are proud that our pupils achieve at the very highest levels in all areas of endeavour, but we believe there is more to life here than our headline achievements.
The range of activities and interests pursued by our girls is exceptionally wide. For our older students there is the choice of A Levels or the International Baccalaureate and, from the very beginning of a pupil's time at the school, the curriculum is both broad and deep. Beyond the classroom there is a huge amount of extra-curriculum activity available, catering to all tastes. This is a busy, vibrant, enthusiastic and creative community.
Every subject has its core curriculum, covered expertly by teacher and thoroughly by girl. But there is so much more to the learning journey. Girls explore beyond the syllabus, find a passion in their study, are brave in embracing new academic challenges and learn to question rather than accept received wisdom. Whilst girls are encouraged to own their learning, personalised attention is tailored in all cases to ensure progress. Our aim is that girls will become sophisticated, independent thinkers and develop into lifelong learners.
