The College Community

There is a strong sense of community at Godalming College. Students make new friends quickly and there is a lively friendly feel to campus life. This is reinforced by the + Enrichment offer, which provides opportunities to be active, to explore new opportunities or study for additional qualifications.

In a survey at the end of the academic year students were overwhelmingly positive about their experience at Godalming. Students feel strongly that they are part of a caring and committed community and that this is a key factor in helping them to flourish.

Welcome from the Godalming College Student Union

Sixth Form College is a unique experience in the sense that you are only here for two years, but it is a fantastic opportunity to bridge the gap between school and higher education as well as working life. I am honoured to have been elected as the Students’ Union President and the greatest privilege of this role is watching as our cohort bonds and evolves from over 1,000 individuals to an interconnected community in which we support and help each other to succeed during our two years together. 

Not only does Godalming provide you with an exciting and nourishing environment for personal growth, but it is also an enriching place to learn, with endless resources and passionate staff, who are determined to help you succeed and flourish. College may seem like a daunting step up, but it is a step up that you will take alongside many other like-minded peers and we, the Students’ Union, are always here to support you during your journey. It is our hope that you too find your place among our incredible student community here at Godalming College.
