From September 2019 the Year 7-9 girls will be joined by the boys in the new co-educational Godman House which is currently undergoing an extension and refurbishment. The House will have separate boys' and girls' wings with communal spaces in the centre.
Godman House is the day and boarding house for 11-14 year old (Year 7, 8 and 9) girls. The House is a vibrant, happy and busy place where open communication thrives. The Boarding team works alongside the main school to develop a thriving structure where all our Day and Boarding pupils develop skills such as independent learning, a genuine confidence and independence to develop a healthy moral compass.
At the end of the school day, letting off steam and quality downtime is important. Evening activities range from baking in the house kitchen, girls-only Clay Pigeon Shooting at the College's sports ground, craft nights and regular events with the Old Rectory boys which take place in the large common room. Weekends are great fun too; from whole school discos and Sunday outings, to cultural trips to Gloucester or Bristol, to bowling, going to the cinema and paintballing.
Boarders have their own common room and the Year 9 girls also have their own space to relax in their newly-decorated 'den'. Girls can make use of the House Garden and also have regular sing-a-longs around the House piano. The girls love showing the Junior School girls around the House when they host their 'Big Sister' events.
