Godolphin and Latymer School is an independent day school for girls aged between 11 and 18; it is located in Hammersmith, West London, and is easily accessible by public transport from the surrounding areas. Means-tested bursaries are available at 11+ and 16+ entry covering up to 100% of fees; music scholarships are offered at 11+ and art and music scholarships at 16+.

The school has an excellent academic record and students gain places on a huge range of competitive courses at the very best universities both in the UK and overseas. Godolphin is a research-informed school that places great emphasis on the quality of its teaching to provide a broad and well-rounded education. It embraces innovation and new opportunities to create learning environments which promote analytical skills, emotional intelligence, teamwork, adaptability, entrepreneurship, creative thinking and problem-solving. Students are encouraged to explore beyond the syllabus and to find passion in their study and to be brave in embracing new academic challenges. The academic and pastoral sides of school life operate very much in tandem and students grow as independent and sophisticated thinkers and learners whilst being supported in their personal development as they learn key life skills.

The school prides itself on the amount of choice and opportunity it offers students. There is an exciting and ambitious curriculum with a wide range of subjects, and at Sixth Form it is one of the few schools in London that offers the choice of the A Level and the International Baccalaureate Diploma pathway. Beyond the classroom girls enjoy the most extensive extra-curricular programme and facilities to pursue their interests and talents, and there are many opportunities for students to take on leadership roles and positions of responsibility within the school community. There is a strong culture of community and voluntary service, caring for others and kindness which permeates the whole school. The school aims to develop students who will become the leading citizens of the future: young adults who are capable of thinking for themselves and who can demonstrate a critical awareness of the wider world, having a sense of their own worth whilst being appreciative of others.
