Our House Council system gives girls the opportunity to take part in the day-to-day running of their boarding houses, valuing their views and opinions. The House Councils also strengthen a feeling of belonging and develop a sense of ownership whilst providing opportunities for leadership and personal growth. The result is social cohesion and a strong House identity.
The House Councils are made up of the Head of House, a Deputy and a Head of Sarums who remain in office for the academic year and representatives of each year group who are members for a term and elected by their peers.
The importance and benefits of these roles lie at the heart of the ‘Every Child Matters’ philosophy, where there is an expectation that young people have a voice in the planning and delivery of services intended for them. Moreover, Godolphin supports its students to make these positive contributions.
