The Godolphin and Latymer School

In their own words

When I welcome visitors to Godolphin and Latymer, they often comment on the warm, friendly and supportive atmosphere and the creative and enthusiastic energy of the girls. This is a school where individual talents are nurtured and championed and where students are encouraged to develop their own passions and interests; there really is no typical Godolphin girl!

We take pride in the school’s longstanding reputation for academic excellence, but there is much more to life here than simply our headline achievements. We are ambitious and innovative in our approach to teaching and learning to best equip and inspire our students to flourish in the outside world. For our Sixth Form pupils there is the choice of the A Level or International Baccalaureate pathway and, from the very beginning of a student’s time at the school, the curriculum is both broad and deep. Beyond the classroom there is a huge amount going on and the range of activities and interests pursued by the girls, with such boundless commitment and energy, never ceases to amaze me.

I hope that our website gives you a flavour of life at Godolphin and Latymer. However, it is by visiting us that you will gain the strongest impression of our unique atmosphere and ethos, and I do very much look forward to extending a warm welcome to you in the near future.

The admissions process uses the online ISEB Common Pre Test (sometimes referred to as the Common Entrance Exam). This exam has a specific format and structure, includes a range of predictable questions types and is taken in an online/computer environment. Students should pay particular attention to the Non-Verbal and Verbal-Reasoning modules, as these sections may include question types they have never encountered before.
