16+ Entry

There are two routes of entry into the Sixth Form.

For scholarship applicants, girls are required to sit written entrance papers, consisting of two papers taken from the subjects of preferred A level choice, together with a general paper.

For usual Sixth Form entry, your daughter will be invited for an interview (usually in the November preceding the year of entry) with Dr Pascoe, Headmistress, and Mrs Rees, Assistant Head (Sixth Form).  A conditional offer may then be made based on the outcome of this interview and subject to achieving at least five GCSE passes (grades A* to B), but preferably A* or A grades in the subjects they are going to take at A level, although each student’s individual profile will be assessed.

If a candidate is unable to attend for interview, the written entrance papers route will apply.

In both cases a private and confidential report from the present Headteacher will be requested prior to either interview or written assessment.

The Governors of the Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools are committed to broadening access to the schools by offering to eligible parents/guardians means-tested financial support with payment of school fees.  Such support is known as a Bursary and these may be awarded in the form of a discount of up to 100% on tuition fees, depending on the financial, compassionate or other pertinent circumstances of the applicants, including the number of children in the family. Pupils holding bursaries may also be given help with travel and other expenses.
