The curriculum: The Monmouth School for Boys curriculum is based on the National Curriculum but is not constrained by it. We introduce pupils to a wide range of subjects in their early years at the school and they usually go on to take 9 or 10 subjects at GCSE. Around 25 A 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 offers a wide and varied co-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 each boy well over a period of years and provide experienced and sympathetic guidance throughout his school career. We ensure 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
Outstanding characteristics: With a strong emphasis on academic success (65% of Sixth Formers go on to Russell Group universities), sport, the arts, music and CCF help shape the boys. Founded in 1614, endowment income ensures outstanding facilities and highly competitive fees. Scholarships and bursaries mean that one in five pupils receives financial support. Our new co-educational teaching in the Sixth Form with Monmouth School for Girls enables us to offer around 30 A level subjects and many joint activities.
