Introduction to Prep
Godstowe is remarkable in many ways: it is non-selective on entry but is one of the most academically successful prep schools in the UK. In the earliest stages our pupils follow a broad, but highly structured curriculum in which literacy and numeracy are of the utmost importance.
With small classes and expert teaching, we achieve remarkable results. We will work closely with you to ensure your daughter is happy and that her potential is fulfilled.
Small classes and first-rate facilities ensure that each child receives a generous amount of individual attention. Enquiring minds are stretched in an environment where effort, good manners, consideration for others and success are nurtured and rewarded.
'As a family we are impressed with the quality of teaching and the dedication shown by teachers towards Isabella to enable her to reach her full potential. I believe Godstowe has offered Isabella an excellent education and has set her up very well for senior school'

Lessons are stimulating and children are encouraged to think for themselves, to question and to debate. Classroom boundaries are often stretched through visits within the local area and more distant excursions and field trips.
In a happy and secure environment, children learn with confidence, creativity and focus.
The teachers are especially nurturing and committed to bringing out the best in every child. Learning and teaching are active, exciting and coherent. Teachers present subject matter in imaginative ways and frequently use games, role play and stimulating projects in addition to more traditional teaching styles.
We welcome close parental involvement in the school and believe that our tradition of excellence in education is truly a result of community involvement.
