Although our existing school buildings date from only the 1970's, the original 'Godwin Road School' was founded on 1st October 1883. There was an entrance for junior boys in Cranmer Road. The Godwin Road entrance was shared by girls and infants - this entrance was reinstated when the school expanded recently.
Kelly's Street Directory for 1886 shows the following information about Godwin Road School:
Master: Henry Herbert
Mistress: Alice Gwynn
Infant Teacher: Mary Ann Cocks
Clearly life at Godwin has changed immeasurably since the school opened in 1883.
This video shows school life at Godwin in 1969 - please let us know if you recognise anyone!
