About Us


Monmouth School for Girls aims not only to prepare pupils for examinations but also to provide them with the skills needed to succeed and thrive in the wider world.

The high achievements of past pupils across such a wide selection of careers, we believe, reflects the well-rounded education on offer and demonstrates how we help to develop each pupil’s individual talents and strengths.

There are close links in place with past pupils and opportunities for them to keep in touch with the School and one another.  Attendance at school events and the number of alumnae who are now themselves parents or even grandparents bears testament to the deep and lasting attachment forged between Monmouth School for Girls and its pupils, past and present.

We have listed just a small cross-section of alumnae to highlight the diverse and inspiring career paths they have chosen.
