Monmouth School for Girls

Monmouth School for Girls guides day and boarding pupils aged 11-18 through this crucial stage of their educational and emotional development.

Our girls thrive and flourish within a positive, constructive and inspiring single-sex community, set in the outstanding natural beauty of the Wye Valley.

Education is carefully planned to motivate girls; we deliver a broad choice of subjects, with teaching specifically tailored to their learning styles and subject choices free from any gender stereotyping.

Monmouth girls develop a can-do attitude and make the most of the superb facilities on offer for sports, culture and the arts. Through our unique Monmouth Model, they also benefit from the invaluable interaction with Monmouth School for Boys, sharing many trips and expeditions, events and community projects.

Understanding the pressures of adolescence, our focused approach prepares girls for Sixth Form, where they have the confidence to aim high in their specialist academic subjects and to fulfil their particular sporting, musical or artistic ambitions.

The life of a music scholarship holder is a busy and full one, with an active contribution expected to the huge variety and quality of our music-making.

At the audition, girls will be invited to play two contrasting pieces of music on their first instrument (or voice) with an optional piece on the second instrument (or voice). There will also be aural and sight-reading tests.

In addition, candidates should be prepared to answer general questions regarding their music interest. Successful candidates will be expected to play a full part in co-curricular music and activities in discussion with the Director of Music.

All music scholarships are dependent upon weekly attendance at school musical activities and participation in school concerts. Scholars must receive principal study of instrumental tuition from a member of the music staff.

Exceptions are made for post Grade 8 students who wish to study with an Associate Professor of one of the British Conservatories or who attend the junior departments of Conservatories.
Sports scholarships are offered to pupils demonstrating excellence and potential in their nominated sports. The successful candidates will have a particular strength in one (16+) or two (11+ and 13+) or more sports. They may also have representative or county experience and will have regional and/or international potential.
Dance scholarships are awarded to candidates who show exemplary commitment to dance. They must demonstrate high standards of creative performance and choreography in a range of dance genres and have the ambition to extend this through study and examination. Students who are offered a scholarship will be expected to attend all training sessions and practises, participate in sports fixtures on weekdays and weekends or in all aspects of dance at the school, including productions, performances, choreography, examinations and awards.
To support their application for a sports scholarship, students will need to complete a sporting scholarship questionnaire available from the Admissions Registrar.
Creative Art scholarships recognise that students may have an interest across the range of creative subjects, including the aspects of art and drama.
Drama scholarships: Candidates are invited to a practical workshop and will perform a prepared solo chosen from a selection provided. They will be assessed on set criteria. Students offered drama scholarships should be confident in performance with strong vocal and physical skills; demonstrate a high level of concentration and self-discipline; be able to work generously as part of a team and assume responsibility; act as an ambassador to support theatre events and activities in the school. As part of the award, drama scholars are expected to take the subject at GCSE level.
Art scholarships: Students will be invited to spend a morning or afternoon in the Art Department. Applicants should bring their sketchbook or observational drawings, ideally using a range of media. Students should be prepared to take part in a drawing exercise which will be prepared and introduced by a member of staff. They will also be expected to discuss their work during a short interview. Students awarded a scholarship should expect to study GCSE or A level Fine Art.
The Governors of Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools are committed to broadening access to the schools by offering, to eligible parents/guardians, means-tested financial support with payment of school fees.
A bursary may be awarded in the form of a discount of up to 100% on tuition fees, depending on the financial, compassionate or other pertinent circumstances of the applicants, including the number of children in the family.
Pupils holding bursaries may also be given help with travel and other expenses.
A bursary may be applied for by parents who feel they are unable to accept or retain a place without financial help. All awards are subject to review each year and may be varied upwards and downwards, depending on family circumstances.
Each case is assessed on its own merits and awards are made accordingly at the discretion of the Head, subject to the school’s ability to fund these in the context of what is viable within its overall budget.
