Playtime at Godstowe is very important.
Playtime is a valuable opportunity for personal development, and we do what we can to encourage fun and laughter outside whenever possible.
In the playground you may spot girls wearing pink jackets, these girls are part of 'Playwatch'. They are chosen for these positions for their kindness and thoughtfulness to others. When they are on duty, they give support to anybody who is having a wobble, has fallen out with friends or just needs somebody to chat to. They can go up to Lodge and play with the younger children which they thoroughly enjoy.
It doesn’t matter how old children are, they always love to play, to charge about, to let off steam, to meet and make friends, to learn as they play and sometimes, simply enjoy the chance to be themselves.
The girls in the main school can use the Astroturf play area, the climbing frames and adventure playground, the tennis courts, lawns and other areas of our extensive grounds. They have a long break at lunchtime when they can explore, gossip, sit and read, cartwheel, sing and dance, debate, play chess, act out their own improvisations, perform for each other or just do nothing.
