Introduction

 

Godolphin School is an independent boarding and day school for girls in Salisbury. Very recently, it was named the ‘Southwest Independent Secondary School of the Year’ by the Sunday Times. [1]

 

The curriculum for girls in the Prep School is designed to stimulate their intellectual curiosity and love of learning. It comprises a broad range of subjects, such as maths, English, science, computing, humanities, RS, French, music, art, PE & games, PSHE and drama.

 

After-class clubs further enhance the positive learning experience at Godolphin, engaging children in activities which range from STEM Club and Zumba to Poetry Club and Lego Club.

 

Recent inspection reports of the school have determined that relationships between staff and pupils are exceptional and that the overall personal, social and health development of children at the school is outstanding. [2]

 

Fostering an environment where personal ambitions and talents can be discovered and perfected, the school ensures that its educational provision maintains its holistic dimension, centred on service to those in need. In line with this, girls’ creativity and mental, as well as emotional wellbeing, are carefully monitored and nurtured as they prepare to access the ever-changing world beyond school.
