Parents interested in selecting Godolphin Prep for their daughter’s education would normally request a prospectus, follow up with a visit to the School and, finally, their daughter would visit for a day. During her visit day, depending on her age, a girl’s skills in reading, spelling, writing and mathematics will be assessed through some testing, observation and discussion.
The Registrar requests a written report from their current school for girls entering Year 1 or above.
Parents of girls interested in joining the Nursery or Reception classes are encouraged to liaise with staff to decide the optimum programme of induction for their daughter. This would normally include at least one morning and sometimes three or four mornings spent at the school. When allocating places in the Nursery class, priority will be given to any girl who has registered for the Reception class at Godolphin Preparatory School.
We are registered with Wiltshire County Council for Nursery Fees Entitlement Funding. The current fee entitlement for eligible pupils is 15 hours. From September 2017 some parents of nursery children may qualify for additional funding (up to 30 hours) based on government legislation.
Parents who are considering the entry of their daughter to Godolphin Prep are asked to complete a Registration Form and return it to the Registrar, together with a copy of your daughter’s birth certificate. A registration fee of £50 is payable when a girl’s name is registered with the School. This places a girl’s name on the registration list, but does not commit the parent to the School. An offer of a place is dependent upon the outcome of her visit to the School.
Offer of a Place
Once an offer of a place at the School has been made we ask the parents to complete and return a form of acceptance, together with a non-refundable acceptance fee of £100 for UK and EU nationals and one term’s boarding fees for non-EU nationals.
It is preferable for international students to visit the school prior to placement but if this is not possible an electronic interview (Skype/Facetime) with the Head, Miss Julia Miller, is required.
