Monmouth School for Girls, Monmouth


Monmouth School for Girls is a boarding school that sits in a prominent elevated position above the town of Monmouth in south Wales. The challenging site falls steeply front to back and is adjacent to the main listed stone school. The new building replaces an old gymnasium which was connected to the existing theatre and drama teaching spaces.

The new three storey performing arts centre links directly into the schools existing main theatre building and provides a centrally-located, combined facility for music, drama and dance, including entrance foyer (for performance gatherings), peripatetic rooms, group practice room, sound-proof rock room, technical studio, music classrooms, music library and a new music recital hall to seat 200 people.
