School Description

Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls is an independent boarding and day school for girls from the age of 11 to 18 years with a preparatory school, Inglefield House, for girls from the age of 7 to 11 years. The school was founded in 1892 and is one of three schools of the William Jones’ Schools Foundation, arising from a bequest in 1614 of William Jones, a member of the Haberdashers’ Company. The school is part of the Haberdashers’ Monmouth family of schools and is administered by an overarching governing body for the family of schools and a Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls committee that oversees the life of the school. The school currently has 602 pupils on roll. These include 129 pupils in Inglefield House, 335 in the senior school and 138 in the sixth form. Almost one-quarter of pupils are boarders. About 56% of the school’s pupils come from Wales and almost 32% from England. The remainder come from other parts of the world, with the majority from Hong Kong. About 10% of pupils come from minority ethnic groups. All pupils speak English fluently and a very few pupils speak Welsh as a first language at home. There are a few pupils who speak English as an additional language. Lessons are taught in English and the school does not aim to make pupils bilingual in English and Welsh although provides the opportunity for pupils to study Welsh to GCSE level as a second language extra-curricular activity. The school identifies about 3% of pupils as having additional learning needs. There are no pupils with a statement of special educational needs. Entry to the school is selective and, where possible, pupils are interviewed. Pupils who wish to join Inglefield House undertake informal, untimed assessments to evaluate their literacy and numeracy skills. For entry into Year 7, pupils sit English, mathematics and non-verbal reasoning assessments. For entry into Years 9 and 10, pupils sit papers in English, mathematics, science and either French, Spanish or German. Entry to the sixth form is dependent upon interview, a minimum of six GCSE A* to B grades and a pupil’s previous school report. The last inspection of the school was in October 2009. Since then, there have been changes to the structure of the leadership team. The senior leadership team now includes the headteacher, two deputy headteachers and a foundation bursar. There is also an extended senior management team which includes the senior leadership team, the headteacher of Inglefield House and the three assistant headteachers. The present headteacher joined the school in April 2014. The school describes its ethos and aims as follows: ‘to provide the finest education possible through a process of enlightening, of opening minds and of enriching experiences, which will enable each pupil to realise her potential in a happy, vibrant and caring environment. She will have many varied opportunities to develop intellectually, emotionally, physically and spiritually. She will be encouraged to grow in tolerance and compassion, to gain self-confidence, independence and to aspire to global citizenship relevant to the 21st Century.’ 1 A report on Haberdashers Monmouth School For Girls December 2015 Summary The school’s current performance The school’s prospects for improvement Excellent Excellent Current performance The current performance of Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls is excellent because:  The standards achieved by pupils across the school are extremely high and well above expectations  Pupils’ attendance is exceptionally high  Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary and they have high levels of interest and positive attitudes to their work  The extensive range of extra-curricular activities, with extremely high pupil participation rates, contribute significantly to pupils’ social and personal development  The quality of teaching is consistently high and makes a significant contribution to pupils’ outstanding outcomes  The high quality arrangements for the care, support and guidance of pupils make an outstanding contribution to pupils’ standards, wellbeing and enjoyment in learning  The school successfully promotes an exceptionally strong ethos, which is inclusive, caring and developmental  Well-maintained accommodation and grounds provide an outstanding vibrant and stimulating learning environment Prospects for improvement The school’s prospects for improvement are excellent because:  Across the school, there is a shared sense of purpose and commitment to the school’s vision, values and high aspirations  Leadership throughout the school is of a high quality and contributes significantly to the outstanding outcomes pupils achieve  The governing body provides extremely effective leadership and oversees all aspect of the school’s work robustly through its well-structured committees  The school has successfully established a strong culture of self-evaluation and improvement planning, with effective whole-school arrangements that involve a wide range of stakeholders  The school’s arrangements for partnership working make a significant contribution to improved learning opportunities and outcomes for pupils and to the extensive range of valuable development opportunities for staff  The school has an exceptional track record of ensuring outstanding outcomes in pupils’ performance and high levels of wellbeing, sustained by highly effective teaching and wider support 2 A report on Haberdashers Monmouth School For Girls December 2015 Compliance with the regulations for registration Independent school inspections are governed by the Education Act 2002 and related regulations: the Independent School Standards (Wales) Regulations 2003.
