Admission to the schools is based on a child’s potential, and not just on a single test performance. As part of the evaluation process, we aim to meet with all prospective pupils before the assessment day and we also take into account the recommendations from the child’s previous school.  On the day itself, we try to make the experience as stress-free as possible, with pupils sitting their papers together in small groups.  Allowances are made for the anxiety that some children experience when sitting a test, many for the first time, so we meet each individual on arrival and look after them throughout their visit. Between sessions, they are given the opportunity to take a break for refreshments.  We endeavour to give our prospective pupils every chance to shine.

Monmouth School for Girls Admissions – 11-18: Day and Boarding

Contact Monmouth School for Girls Admissions Registrar – Mrs Karen Stafford-Smith on:

Tel: 01600 711104

Assessments for entry at 11 include an interview, a report from the current school, and written tests in English and Mathematics.  We try to interview the girls before the written assessments so that they have the opportunity to visit the school and meet a member of staff, whom they may see again on the morning of the written assessments.

We try to ensure the interview is as relaxed as possible, giving girls the chance to talk about the things they enjoy and are involved in.  During the interview they are asked to read an unseen passage out loud.  The written assessments in Mathematics and English are based on the National Curriculum levels 1 to 5.
