Best independent boys' and girls' schools in Britain
Top 10 British independent school for girls and boys aged 11 - 18 years
Tatler Schools Guide 2013 stated:
‘Money matters, so let's cut to the chase: thanks to a generous income from the Haberdashers' Company, Monmouth's fees are among the best value in the country’.
This same endowment income also enables the Schools to offer a generous range of scholarships and means-tested bursaries, opening access to a first-class British education.
In addition, new Sixth Form boarding houses opened in 2011 and 2012 provide ideal surroundings for the older students of this top independent school at this crucial stage in their education, the perfect stepping stone between school and university.
Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls holds aspiration at the heart of its ethos and provides the best possible environment for girls to study, relax and be happy.
Consistently high A Level and GCSE results enable girls to pursue careers as varied as Medicine, Law, Engineering and Journalism.
HMSG is filled with energy, commitment to learning and to extra-curricular activities alike. It fosters a belief that girls can and do achieve extraordinary things with the support of staff and fellow pupils.
Monmouth School prides itself on the academic value it can add to every boy. It still requires only 5 B grades at GCSE Level for entry to the VIth Form, but achieved its best ever A Level results last summer, with 61% A*/A grades.
All of this academic excellence is balanced by outstanding extra-curricular activities in music, the arts, sport and adventurous pursuits. Monmouth School is currently Archant Best British Boarding School.
