Godstowe provides an exciting and stimulating education that meets the needs of all our pupils, extending and broadening beyond the requirements of the National Curriculum. Our caring, friendly atmosphere creates a happy and positive learning environment.
Children move from the Pre-Prep to Main School at the age of seven. From seven to nine years old they are taught mainly by their Form Tutor with specialist teachers for Languages, Music, Design Technology, ICT and Sport.
From nine to 11 years of age, children are taught by specialists in every subject. Some transparent streaming is implemented from the age of ten to ensure that lessons proceed at the pace most appropriate to the individual girl. Mathematics is divided into sets from age eight to ensure that the needs of the child are exactly matched.
Many academic scholarships are successfully achieved to senior schools at 13 each year and our success rate for 11+ entry to local grammar schools is renowned. Up to the end of Year 6 our schemes of work reflect the National Curriculum. As children move into Years 7 and 8 the Common Entrance and relevant Scholarship syllabus requirements are followed.
