Godstowe features in the Tatler Schools Guide 2014
Godstowe once again features in the Tatler Good Schools Guide to the top Prep and Public schools in the UK. Here's what they had to say about us:
Goodness, we do love Godstowe and its polite yet gutsy girls. Rarely have we encountered such good manners. The use of ‘like’ to punctuate sentences is particularly frowned upon so ‘they don’t all sound as though they’re in a Disney teen movie’, says a mother. Boarding is heaving – we hear on the grapevine that they recently turned away 17 boarding applications in one week. Last year’s leavers won 20 scholarships to the likes of Wycombe Abbey and Downe House. A swanky sports hall and a new theatre have just been completed too. We gave head David Gainer our Best Prep School Head Award last year. ‘Education really doesn’t need to be rocket science,’ he says. His winning formula: confidence plus happiness equals success.
