Boarders’ Activities

All boarders are encouraged to participate in the wide range of extra-curricular activities on offer at lunchtimes and after school during the week. At weekends we provide a wide range of activities and trips for boarders, often joining with pupils from Monmouth School for Boys.

Every Saturday morning girls are encouraged to take part in swimming, rock climbing, archery, serotonin drums, sessions in the fitness suite or in house activities such as baking and crafts. Girls are able to sign up to these on a weekly basis.

On Sunday’s activities range from surfing, biking and ice skating as well as an annual trip to Alton Towers Theme Park. There also more sedate activities such as shopping in nearby Cardiff and Bristol. We work hard to ensure that there is something on the menu for everybody and always welcome new suggestions from the girls.
