Working, Training and Volunteering

Be willing to help and care for each other because of Christ. By doing this, you honour Christ.’ Ephesians 5.21 

As a successful and well established school with extremely low levels of staff turnover, we are a sought after organisation for volunteers, trainees and students. We have strong links with Guildford and Godalming Colleges, often hosting students studying Early Education or Childcare. We also host students from Chichester University who are working towards their qualified teacher status. Each year ex-pupils return to complete work experience from Broadwater, Rodborough and Guildford County School.

We have several volunteers who visit on a weekly basis, hearing individual children read and supporting group work. If you would like to join this merry band, please speak to the school office. All volunteers will be asked to complete a DSB safeguarding check.

Breaking News!

As part of the newly formed Godalming Learning Trust, we are working ever more closely with local schools. From September 2019 we have partnered with Winchester University to provide 10 initial teacher training (ITT) places for local graduates across Godalming Schools. One of the first group of trainees is now one of our brilliant teachers! Want to apply for September  2022? Link:
