Clubs and Activities
There is an extensive range of extra-curricular activities on offer at Monmouth School Girls’ Prep. Many of the activities, such as individual music lessons or sport clubs, are fitted into the school day. However, some clubs take place at the end of the school day.
Please note the finish time for your daughter’s after-school clubs.
After School Care is available each day from 4:05pm – 6:00pm. Girls are able to stay after 6:00pm by arrangement and become the responsibility of the boarding house. For later starting clubs, girls can go into After School Care until their club starts.
There are two choirs at Monmouth School Girls’ Prep. The Lower Junior Choir is open to all girls in Years 3 and 4 and the Upper Junior Choir is for the girls in Years 5 and 6. The pupils rehearse weekly. The girls perform regularly at many school events such as Children in Need, school concerts, Christingle and musicals.
Monmouth School Girls’ Prep Orchestra: Our orchestra is open to all girls in the school. Anyone who plays an orchestral instrument is welcome to join. The orchestra performs at a variety of concerts during the year and have enjoyed taking part in workshops.
Extra curricular Sport
Most of our extra curricular sports clubs take place during the school day at lunchtime. All girls are given the opportunity to take part in our sports clubs to further develop the skills they have been taught during their timetabled lessons.
Extra curricular Dance
A breadth of opportunities is open to girls at extra-curricular clubs held throughout the week. Pupils can attend during lunchtimes and after school to train in and enjoy Ballet, Tap and Modern styles. They may choose to study Ballet through the RAD syllabus; Tap for the IDTA Medal Awards; and Modern Dance, working towards various performance projects and IDTA Medal Awards.
All extra-curricular dance is co-ordinated with the senior school dance provision. This close link ensures that, when prep girls move up to senior school, they are confident to apply the skills they have learned to the next and more advanced stage of their dance development.
All clubs are led by the Monmouth School for Girls’ dance staff who work to their proven strengths to make certain the highest possible standards are maintained. Grade examinations are held at the senior school.
Our very popular Chess club meets one afternoon every week after school and is run by Mr Kevin Thomas, a chess master.
The girls, of all ages, compete against each other in a Super League and against other schools including Monmouth School Boys’ Prep and Osbaston School.
The Drama club at Monmouth School Girls’ Prep is about having lots of fun while building technique in movement and drama.
Reading club is all about fostering an enjoyment of books and reading. We read books, listen to books being read to us, talk about books, draw pictures and sometime even act out parts of a book that we have read. Reading club is about having a great deal of fun and is purely about the enjoyment of all kinds of books.
