Situated on the border of Wales, Monmouth School and Haberdashers' Monmouth School for Girls blend the traditions of English and Welsh schooling whilst offering an education comparable to the finest in the UK, but at a lower cost.

Endowment income enables the schools to offer amazing facilities and renowned academic success with full boarding fees of around £5,500 per term, compared with £8,000 per term in England.

The schools are unique in offering the advantages of single sex education within a framework which includes a co-educational nursery and pre-prep school and a co-ordinated sixth form timetable, where there is a choice of more than 30 AS/A level subjects on offer.

There are many joint activities run across the two senior schools, from the Cadet Force to boarders' evening and weekend activities. The schools also run an extensive network of coaches enabling pupils to attend daily from Cardiff, Hereford, Newport and Gloucestershire.

Excellent results (HMSG is top Welsh school in the Telegraph league tables for both A level and GCSE results in 2006) do not preclude a full programme of extra-curricular activities and sporting fixtures.

Monmouth School fields up to four teams in a year group and their head rugby coach is John Bevan, ex-British Lions. HMSG has just won the regional title of South Wales Senior Lacrosse Champions and rowers from both schools represented GB in the summer.

In the spirit of its foundation, the schools use their endowment income to ensure that accessibility to the schools is as broad as can be and they offer a generous range of scholarships, bursaries and assisted places.
