Forces Bursaries

We are truly committed to supporting HM Armed Forces families wherever possible. Providing they are eligible for the Continuity of Education Allowance, our service families are guaranteed to pay 10% of their child’s boarding fees, costing around £1,000 a term.

With an average of 33% of our boarders coming from Forces families, we have many years’ experience providing high levels of care and support for military children.

Our staff understand the worries and concerns children may feel when parents are serving overseas. Each Houseparent, Matron and Tutor recognise the importance of pastoral care and one of their many responsibilities is to act as a supportive guide and mentor for every single boarder. A significant element of our pastoral care is the family atmosphere that we maintain in the boarding houses. Many of our boarding staff live in, most with their families, children and pets which truly enhances the sense of home and community.

Your child’s home will always be with you. However, recognising how often you move for postings in the UK and overseas, you can rest assured knowing your child is comfortable and happy in Monmouth, their home away from home.

Pupils quickly integrate into boarding life. They easily settle into our comfortable, spacious accommodation and have the opportunity to enjoy the wealth of co-curricular activities available after school and on weekends. We want to assure military parents that their children will experience an enriching time at Monmouth whilst they are away. Our aim is that every boarder should enjoy a fulfilled, happy school life and to come out the other end with lifelong friends, lovely memories and a strong sense of community. Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools will soon become a boarder’s second home and parents can feel confident and comfortable knowing that their children are being cared for and educated by the inspirational staff at our schools.

The Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools value a close relationship with the Armed Forces. Many of our alumni have joined the Armed Forces since leaving school. Our respected Combined Cadet Force (Army and RAF) fosters the qualities of endurance, resourcefulness, self-reliance, leadership, responsibility and a sense of public service.

With growing uncertainty over eligibility for the Continuity of Education Allowance, we are keen to provide additional reassurance for Forces families.  Subject to availability, we offer means-tested Bursaries to ensure continuity through key stages of education should you lose eligibility due to unforeseen circumstances.
