Godstowe is a non-selective School. This means there are no entrance examinations and children are accepted by their order on our waiting lists. Older girls are asked to complete assessments in English and Maths to determine appropriate class placement.
You are welcome to visit the School at any time for an informal tour and to meet the Headmistress. Appointments may be made through the Registrar, Mrs Bird, on 01494 529273 or ...
In addition, Open Mornings are held each term giving you the perfect opportunity to see the School in action, meet staff, children and parents. Our next Open Mornings are:
Wednesday 6th March 2019 - Early Years & Pre-Prep - by appointment
Thursday 7th March 2019 - Prep (Years 3-8, including boarding) - by appointment
Saturday 11th May 2019 - Whole School
If you would like to attend an Open Morning, please contact the Registrar, Mrs Bird, on 01494 429006 or at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by completing the Contact Form.
Registration is the initial stage of the Admissions procedure and early registration is advised. Registration Forms are available from the registrar at email@example.com or you can download a form here. A non-returnable Registration fee of £100 should accompany your completed Registration Form payable to Godstowe School.
Offer of a Place
The offer of a place is accompanied by an Acceptance Form. A deposit of £750 is required on acceptance of a place at the School. The School reserves the right to charge an additional deposit of £1,250 to parents (including UK nationals) who reside overseas. For the circumstances in which the deposit is refunded please see the School's terms and conditions.
All children must feel comfortable about the transition from their current school to a new environment. We try to ensure a smooth transfer by inviting pupils to visit, or welcoming boarders for a 'sleepover', during the term prior to entry to the school.
If your contract with the School was formed entirely by means of distance communication (i.e. by post, fax or electronic communication) without a face-to-face meeting with a member of the School staff you may cancel the contract within 14 days of the date of acceptance. The place was accepted when you returned the acceptance form with your payment of the Acceptance Deposit and the Additional Deposit (if applicable).
You have the right to cancel the Parent Contract without giving any reason.
To exercise your right to cancel, you must inform us at the School address of your decision to cancel this contract by a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or an email). You may use the model cancellation form (see below), or your own wording, if you prefer.
To meet the cancellation deadline you must send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.
Effects of cancellation
a) Where we have provided educational services
If, following your acceptance of a place and payment of the Acceptance Deposit and the Additional Deposit (if applicable), we provide educational services to your child, and then you choose to cancel the contract before the 14 day period expires, you will be liable to pay to us our reasonable costs. These will be the costs for the actual services provided up to the time you communicate to us your cancellation of the contract, calculated as a proportion of the termly fees. We will return to you, after deduction of our reasonable costs, the balance of fees and any deposit(s) paid.
b) Where we have not provided educational services
If you cancel this contract within the 14 day period and we have not provided any services, we will reimburse to you in full any payment of fees and deposit(s) received from you, without undue delay, and not later than 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel.
We will make any reimbursement due using the same means of payment as you used for payment to us, unless we expressly agree otherwise. You will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.
Reimbursement of payments made
If you have paid to us an amount greater than any costs we have properly incurred, we will reimburse you with the balance, within the timescale and in the manner set out in b) above.
