The ethos of boarding at Godstowe is to provide a home-from-home feel and that of a large extended family. Every boarder is encouraged to develop their full potential in all areas of life. Our aim is for all our girls to grow up as confident, happy and successful individuals. One of the many strengths of boarding at Godstowe includes the extensive Co-Curricular programme. As a non-selective school, Godstowe is thriving in terms of examination results, enrichment, art, musical and sporting achievement.

This is a full-time residential position during term time and duties will be primarily based in the boarding house.  The accommodation offered comprises a single room with en-suite, and is available to the job holder both during term time as well as in the holidays.
