Sport

Sporting opportunities for all

Many of our students play sport to an extremely high level and enjoy the superb specialist coaching on offer and the opportunity to gain representative sporting honours. We count several Olympians amongst our alumni and we currently have over 70 students competing for their country. However, sport in the Sixth Form is not just about the elite athletes. We also encourage and develop the sporting talents of students who are no less enthusiastic but maybe less competitive. We see health and fitness as an important element to well-being at Monmouth and aim to embed it into adult life. Sports on offer vary at each school but we run joint tennis, equestrian, cross country, swimming, dance and softball. Main sports for the girls include lacrosse, hockey, netball, rowing, rounders, gymnastics, athletics and fencing, while at the boys’ school rugby, football, cricket, rowing, and athletics are all on the sporting agenda.
