Monmouth School – The Book

opening of the 400th anniversary exhibition

As part of the 400th anniversary celebrations, a history of the School, Monmouth School; the First 400 Years, was published in June 2014.

This beautifully illustrated book was put together to tell the story of Monmouth School in the run up to the 400th anniversary of its foundation.

Monmouth School Book

The book explores the enigmatic figure of the School’s founder, William Jones, before sketching the early years of the School up to a point where, towards the end of the 19th century, its Headmaster was invited to join the Headmasters’ Conference.

It is to the story of the School from this point onwards that the major part of the book is devoted, chronicling the years of the two world wars, other crises the School has had to face and, above all, the considerable achievement of pupils, past and present, both in the academic sphere and in the host of extra-curricular activities on offer there.
