Overview

Integral to the richness of life at the School is its boarding community, with a full programme of after-school and weekend activities. Boys take full advantage of the superb facilities and participate in a large number of extra-curricular activities as well as a range of national and international trips every year.All around I hear doom and gloom about the lack of progress of boys in this country. At Monmouth I am very pleased to report that they are in fine fettle! Boys flourish at a school which has a long tradition of knowing how they develop best. In every area they are thriving: academically, in the arts and on the sports fields and on the river, boys at Monmouth are developing just as well as their female counterpartsWe provide an environment in which boys prosper through academic tracking and pastoral engagement, using systems which are not the result of the latest whims of educational theorists, but developed from long experience. All of this was confirmed in our most recent, excellent inspection report:We also believe in spiritual development. Our young and vibrant Chaplaincy team have regular contact with the boys. Two years ago saw a visit from the Archbishop of Canterbury to bless a mosaic celebrating the life of Saint David which has been installed in the School Chapel. A two day pilgrimage at the end of the summer term, from Monmouth to the site of one of St David's earliest places of worship, encouraged boys who volunteer to learn about the history, geography and spirituality of a fascinating locality. Last year we walked to Tintern Abbey engaged on the same spiritual adventure.
