Throughout the School's existence Godstowe girls have achieved outstanding results and are recognised for their talents and character by prestigious Senior Schools. Many have competed successfully for scholarships and awards for design at these Schools and have represented the School with success at STEAM challenges.  At the same time the School provides excellent pastoral care, to ensure that pupils flourish in line with our ethos of encouraging them to be confident, happy and successful.
