Godstowe resides in 12 acres of parkland overlooking High Wycombe

Highlands House and Walker House and Turner House are each home to around 36 girls aged between seven and 13. All girls have personal lockers, underbed storage and a noticeboard for their special photos and messages. They have their own tennis courts, gardens and swings, plus lots of other exciting outdoor equipment. Girls can roller skate or ride scooters, play badminton and table tennis, or challenge each other to a game of giant Jenga!

Highlands

Highlands House is a dedicated Junior House for girls aged from 6 to 11. It is family run, and staff are specially trained to care for our youngest pupils. Highlands is a real home from home with three well-equipped common rooms. The largest is all about fun and relaxation, with its large-screen TV, DVD player, stereo system and PlayStation. There are stacks of movies, games and music to suit every taste, as well as books and traditional board games. The next-door common room has a piano for music practice and computers for recreational or research use. The third common room is for quiet study and homework.

Highlands has seven dormitories each sleeping between two and eight girls. One of the smaller rooms has an en-suite bathroom that is always very popular!

Walker

Walker House has eight dormitories for up to nine girls aged 12 and 13. As the girls mature and progress through the School, they enjoy greater privacy and share with fewer girls.

Walker also has a music room with keyboards, two pianos and a karaoke machine. The larger common room boasts computers, a PlayStation and dance mats, along with TV, DVD player and hi-fi. The quiet room has a library, and is the ideal place to relax in peace or catch up on some prep.

Turner

Turner House is also home to our 12 and 13 year old girls. It is a modern purpose built house, with dormitories that sleep fewer girls affording a greater sense of privacy during their final years. As with the other houses, Turner's three common rooms are very well-equipped, comfortable and versatile. The largest has a stereo, TV and DVD player, along with computers, a piano and electric keyboard. A second room has computers, a wide selection of reference books and a piano for music practice. The smallest room is used as a quiet study area.

All houses have a well-stocked kitchen for late weekend breakfasts, or for making that all-important after-school snack.

The Housemistresses and her deputies strive to make Highlands, Walker and Turner happy and secure environments for all the Godstowe boarders.
