The curriculum: The Monmouth School curriculum is based on the National Curriculum but is not constrained by it. Pupils are introduced to a wide range of subjects in their early years and they usually go on to take nine or 10 subjects at GCSE. Over 30 A and AS level courses are offered in the Sixth Form. In addition to their A level studies, boys have the opportunity to pursue a variety of enrichment and supplementary courses.
Extra curricular activities: Monmouth School offers a wide and varied extra-curricular programme. All boys are encouraged to take full advantage of lunchtime and after school activities and clubs. They develop confidence and make friends through chess, karate, reading, choir and many other activities.
Pastoral care: Each pupil is allocated to a Tutor who is drawn from the academic staff. Both Tutor and Housemaster are able to get to know the boy well over a period of years and provide experienced and sympathetic guidance throughout his school career. They aim to ensure that all pupils gain the utmost from their time at Monmouth, not only in the classroom, but through all the other experiences that the School has to offer.
Name of Principal: Dr Andrew Daniel BSc, MEd, PhD, PGCE

Founded in 1614, endowment income ensures outstanding facilities and highly competitive fees. Scholarships and bursaries mean that one in five pupils receives financial support. Links with Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls enable the school to offer 30 A level subjects and many joint activities.
