School Trips at Godstowe are an integral and very important aspect of our personal development programme.
The girls in the main school will have numerous opportunities to take part in exciting trips and outings, some intigrated into the curriculum, others not. Some are merely recreational.
The list of annual trips is varied and regularly changes. Here are just some examples of what we get up to ...
