Pastoral care

Our schools’ experienced pastoral teams provide well-informed guidance and care throughout your child’s time at Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools.

From your child’s Form Tutor to the Heads of the schools, every member of staff is here to listen and support.

We aim to ensure that all pupils gain the utmost from their time at Monmouth, not only in the classroom, but through all the other experiences that the school has to offer.

Our supportive programme of pastoral care ensures we monitor your child’s personal welfare and deal with any issues sensitively and efficiently.

Our pastoral philosophy is to develop resilience, confidence and skills which will take your child through later life, while offering each pupil bespoke care.

Form tutors are supported by a wider pastoral team which includes the Head of Year, Heads of House, the School Chaplain and our Deputy Heads (Pastoral) have overall responsibility for pastoral matters.

We also have a peer support group within the schools run by the Sixth Form and a buddy system for new pupils.

Monmouth School for Girls is proud to be using the Girls on Board approach

Girls on Board is an approach which helps girls, their parents and their teachers to understand the complexities and dynamics of girl friendships. The language, methods and ideas empower girls to solve their own friendship problems and recognises that they are usually the only ones who can. At Monmouth, we have found this to be a very useful and effective way to support girls to develop the skills they need to manage the dynamics of their friendships – skills which will last them a lifetime.
