The curriculum: Pupils are introduced to a wide range of subjects in their early years at the school and they usually go on to take nine or 10 subjects at GCSE. Around 25 A level courses are offered in the Sixth Form.

Extra-curricular activities: 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. Through the diamond-shaped Monmouth Model, boys also benefit from invaluable interaction with Monmouth School for Girls, sharing many trips and expeditions, events and community projects.

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 pupils gain the utmost from their time at Monmouth, not only in the classroom, but through all the other experiences on offer.

Outstanding characteristics: With around 60% of offers for Russell Group universities, we recognise the importance of getting the best exam results for each boy. We make the most of the area’s wonderful natural resources and the excellent facilities on offer for sports, culture and the arts. Founded in 1614, an endowment income ensures outstanding facilities and highly competitive fees, with around one in five pupils receiving financial support. Co-educational teaching in Monmouth Schools Sixth Form and in the Prep School from September 2021 brings day and boarding boys and girls together at the start and finish of their educational journey.
