Boarding at Monmouth School

Junior boarders, with more than a little help from Sixth Former Will T, recently made a short film about life inside Chapel House. We hope this clip will give you a feel for the energy, friendship and fun which makes boarding in Chapel House such a happy home from home for the boys.


At Monmouth School we are justly proud of our boarding, having been voted Archant’s Best British Boarding School 2011 (in a vote by parents). Around 30% of our pupils are boarders, and one of the reasons for the success of our boarding is, we believe, that we regard our boarders as an important and integral part of our school community.

Everyday in boarding is special as there is so much to share and be involved with. Our aim is to ensure that everyone feels welcome and supported and that all boys have an opportunity to contribute to boarding life.

“Our aim is that every boarder should enjoy a full and rich experience of school life and to come out the other end happy, with lifelong friends, lovely memories and a strong sense of society.” Kingsley Jones, Head of Boarding.
