What the school says...

Monmouth School Boys’ Prep welcomes day and boarding pupils aged 7 - 11 to The Grange – where we focus on developing enthusiastic, inquisitive, resilient boys with high aspirations.
The curriculum is carefully planned around boys’ 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. Boys make the most of the outstanding facilities on offer for sports, culture and the arts.
Through our unique Monmouth Model, they also benefit from the many and varied joint activities with the Girls’ Prep: school trips and expeditions, joint social and co-curricular events and shared community projects. There is a sense that anything is possible, ensuring a confident step up to the senior school.

We would love to show you around our school and Chapel House - our boarding house. To arrange a visit or to discuss the forthcoming entrance, please contact the school.
