Monmouth School for Girlsupcoming open day (click for details)
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 fulfill their particular sporting, musical or artistic ambitions.
Monmouth School Girls’ Prep welcomes day and boarding pupils aged 7 – 11 to Inglefield House – where we focus on developing inquisitive, resilient, spirited girls with high aspirations. The curriculum is carefully planned around girls’ learning styles to develop solid academic foundations. Our engaging subject-specialist teaching staff inspire and motivate the children to learn with a sense of fun and enjoyment. We add the excitement of new subjects and areas of exploration, both in and out of the classroom. The girls make the most of the superb facilities on offer for sports, culture and the arts. They also benefit from the many and varied joint activities with the Boys’ Prep. There is a sense that anything is possible, ensuring a confident step up to the senior school.
Academic results are impressive with girls achieving 100% pass rate at A level regularly. The vast majority of girls achieve places in their first choice university to read subjects as diverse as medicine, law, languages, engineering and economics. Our Sixth Form boarding house, Augusta House, eases this transition further between school and university.
Whether your daughter’s passion is for sport, music, drama, photography, dance or Combined Cadet Force, we will encourage her to reach the highest standard.
We nurture a can-do spirit, facilitating your child’s growing self-confidence. At all ages, we encourage your child to take personal responsibility, to encounter challenge, to think for herself and to understand service to the community.
Gifted & Talented
We offer a varied and wide range of opportunities for your daughter from debating to national competitions, as well as subject-based extension work and trips.
You child will be monitored closely to make sure she is reaching her potential. Reading lists allow pupils to extend their learning and there are also internal opportunities for essay writing and project-based development.
All pupils are screened at regular intervals and extra support may be given to meet a child’s specific learning needs. Any member of staff can refer a pupil for initial testing by the Learning Support Department and the outcome forming the Individual Educational Plan.
EAL pupils sit an entrance test and, depending on their needs, will receive individual or small-group support. Our Sixth Form pupils are monitored closely to ensure that they have the appropriate qualifications for their university applications. Most temporary EAL pupils also sit a variety of external qualifications in English.
