What the school says...
With a new, purpose-built school, state of the art facilities and a team of experienced and dedicated teaching staff, The Grange, Monmouth Preparatory School offers the best possible learning environment for your son. The highly-qualified staff are passionate about teaching and with strong male and female role models, they motivate and challenge boys to achieve their own personal best and instil a lifelong love of learning. Boarders at The Grange live in Chapel House a delightful Georgian building with extensive grounds ideal for building dens and dedicated staff creating a home from home for our younger boarders.
Sport is an important element of life at The Grange, and each boy has the chance to represent the School in a variety of sports from rugby, football and cricket to athletics, cross-country, swimming and tennis. Adjacent to the Monmouth School Sports Complex, the boys are just a step way from the 25m pool, indoor sports facilities, astro-turf and 25 acres of sports pitches. Music too is extremely popular, boys are encouraged to join the orchestra, band and choir; concerts are a large feature of school life.
