Welcome to Monmouth Comprehensive School

Dear Parents and Students

Welcome to Monmouth Comprehensive School

In our school we encourage everyone to have the highest expectations of themselves and each other as together we Learn to Lead our Lives.

We are proud of our students’ academic achievements.  Just as importantly, we are a school that cares.  We believe that students need to feel comfortable and secure in order to learn and, as a school, we put as much emphasis on creating a supportive and happy environment as we do on academic success.  We achieve both.

I look forward to working with you to ensure the very best learning and life for the young people in our care.

Catching up with the Comms Team

21/9/2018

As you know, MCS opened the doors to the new school building this week to welcome 1600 students, both old and new.  It's been a long haul but well worth it with a successful transition into this amazing building.

To kick off the academic year, the Performing & Expressive Arts Faculty (PEA) are looking for prospective 'stars' to audition for our production of 'Anything Goes'.  Auditions will take place next week on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (breaktimes and after school) in the PEA Faculty.  Sign up sheets may be found on the boards outside Room 241 - don't be shy!

If you would like a taste of the new build and student life at MCS, we'd be delighted to see you from 5pm on Thursday 27th September at our Open Evening.  Students and staff will be waiting for you in their Departments and the Sixth Form Prefect Team will be happy to take you on a guided tour.

SMILES SAY IT ALL AT MCS ON GCSE RESULTS DAY

23/8/2018

Students sat the new reformed GCSEs this summer and achieved excellent results across the curriculum, especially at the higher grades. In the new WJEC GCSE Science exams of Physics, Chemistry and Biology, more than 40% of grades were at A*/A%.  There was similar success across the curriculum. 52% of all grades in History were at A*/A and in RS ,54% of all grades at A*/A.  In the Performing and Expressive Arts Faculty, 62% of all grades in Music were at A*/A and in Drama 41%. In Information Technology, 73% of grades were at A*/A. In the new Skills Challenge Certificate, 90% of students achieved at national level. A superb result. These excellent results have been achieved through the hard work, determination and ambition of students, parents and staff.

With all this success, it is the individual stories of personal endeavour to achieve the very best that reveal the resilience of our students. Nearly 60 students achieved 5 or more grades at the highest level of A*/A, with many at A*/A in every subject.
