How is this calculated?
Haberdashers Monmouth School for Girls is an independent day and boarding school for 11 to 18-year-old girls. It also has a prep school, Inglefield House, for 7 to 11-year old girls, which is situated on the same campus. Founded in 1892, Haberdashers Monmouth School for Girls (HMSG) is so named, because it was established by a foundation created from the bequest of William Jones, a local liveryman of the Haberdashers’ Company in the 17th century. The bequest was specifically intended to provide funds to set up schools.

The School is located in the stunning Wye Valley on the outskirts of the Welsh town of Monmouth. It is close to the border with England. Just over half of the pupils who board at the school are British citizens, but the school is popular with international students as well. A quarter of the boarders are from China and there are also girls from countries as diverse as Germany, Chile, Russia, Portugal, Nigeria and Japan.

Upon arrival at HMSG, the girls are placed into one of four houses, which are named in honour of former school governors and a represented by a colour: Bagnall Oakeley (purple), Imbert Terry (green), Mather Jackson (blue) and Prosser (yellow). This system gives girls the opportunity to associate and work with pupils in the same house, from across the school. Through representing their Houses, the girls will also learn useful life skills such as loyalty, responsibility, team work and co-operation.
