Godolphin Nursery

We offer a Nursery School education for girls in beautiful private grounds close to Salisbury city centre. We provide an outstanding pre-school learning environment, both indoors and outdoors.  The Nursery forms part of Godolphin School, and therefore benefits from the wonderful facilities within the extensive grounds. Godolphin is the only all-through independent girls school in Salisbury.

We have a team of specialist nursery practitioners who are experts across a wide range of Early Years disciplines. Sessions include specialist teaching in music, French, swimming and ballet.  A child-centred curriculum encourages individuality and the development of personality.

The Nursery is registered with Wiltshire Council for the Nursery Education grant and this currently provides an entitlement of 15 hours free per week.  Childcare is available from 8.00 am and from 3.20 pm – 5.40 pm. Morning or whole day sessions with a hot lunch and before and after school care are available. Girls staying after 4.20 pm are provided with a healthy and nutritious tea.

We can support the girls with a smooth transition from Nursery to the Reception Class and our recent inspection report identified our management of transitions as excellent, describing “the transition to the next stage of learning as seamless.”
