For families

Goodenough College offers excellent facilities for postgraduates living here with their children.

Parents Club

The Goodenough Parents Club brings together all the families at the College and provides everything from advice on schools to baby-sitting and family-friendly day trips.

I am a single parent and it could not have been easier fitting into Goodenough’s “ready made” community with my 7-year-old daughter Rebecca. The Parents Club was invaluable: the friends I made helped me find Rebecca a place at a local school, and we enjoyed picnics and wonderful celebrations together.
