Applications

The excitement of joining a boarding school in another country is not lost on us here at Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools. We strive to ensure that every international student feels welcome and at home in wonderful Wales. Monmouth, birthplace of King Henry V, is a beautiful historical town situated just 2 miles from the Welsh/English border. The picturesque high street and the luscious green countryside will feel like home in no time.

Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools welcomes applications from international candidates for all year groups. Boarding is available from Year 3 – Year 13 (ages 7-18 years), however, our youngest overseas boarders tend to join us from Year 5 and up.

We welcome pupils from all over the world. We host a wonderful community representing over 20 different nationalities.

All international students will be taught in English and therefore are required to have a good working knowledge of the language. English as an Additional Language (EAL) is provided by experienced English teachers, for those that require it.

Entry assessments

Candidates are required to sit entry assessments in English and Mathematics. We will invite all boys to an interview and we will also require a report from their current school or agent.
