2019 was a particularly exciting year for Godolphin, as the school was awarded ‘Southwest Independent Secondary School of the Year’, by The Sunday Times. The Good Schools Guide says “It seems an idyllic school, that offers the very best in single sex education." Godolphin praises individuality and creativity and is passionate about educating girls for the 21st century. Boarders and day girls live together and there is a strong sense of community with a commitment to pastoral care.

Godolphin's Learning Support Department supports students who have additional needs around the curriculum. Once a teacher has identified a learning need, Mrs Claire Firth, Head of Learning Support meets with the student and her parents before an assessment by an Educational Psychologist, Specialist Teacher, Occupational Therapist, Speech and Language Therapist or Vision Therapist.
Following an assessment and once the School has a clear diagnosis, the student will receive one-to-one support. If the student needs support but doesn’t have a specific learning need, a member of Godolphin's support staff will work with them to manage their needs.
If a student has a specific learning difficulty, one of our Dyslexia trained teachers will teach them during school hours and they will remain part of the core curriculum. When possible, girls will be taken out of non-core subjects for additional lessons before school starts, at lunch times or after school.
All additional lessons are organised by Mrs Firth with agreement from the girls, parents and staff.
All students with learning needs are updated on the school’s network and teachers are regularly in contact with one another to ensure every girl is fully supported.
