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.

The school offers an exciting range of facilities including the Rudland Music School, with its own recording studio, and a drama and performance space in the recently opened Bishop Centre. A state of the art Sports and Fitness Centre opened in September 2015, providing a sports hall, climbing wall, dance studio and fitness suite. Tennis/netball courts and an Astroturf hockey pitch are also on-site.

We are a school with a strong pastoral ethos, where academic excellence is encouraged in a caring environment and where each individual girl is able to develop her interests and her talents in all areas. We aim to provide choice and challenge for each pupil with the IB Diploma Programme or traditional A levels being offered as part of the sixth form curriculum. The school has an excellent academic record and when girls leave us at 18, to take up their places at leading universities in this country and overseas, they are confident, articulate and independent.

Girls are proud of their school and value its unique character. They enjoy a wide range of extra-curricular activities and appreciate the many opportunities to take responsibility within the school community and contribute to its future development. Girls have the chance to enjoy an exciting range of visits during their time at the school, recent examples being to Iceland, Italy, Washington and a ski trip to Vermont. Sixth Form girls are able to participate in European work experience in Versailles or Berlin, giving them an opportunity to gain an insight into possible future careers as well as practising their language skills.

The school aims to develop students who will become the leading citizens of the future; girls 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.
