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

15/2/2019

The Monmouth’s Got Talent auditions were amazing this week – the finalists will be announced next week and we can’t wait to see them in the final at the Blake Theatre on Wednesday 6th March – good luck!.

Pre-Sixth Evening takes place at the school next Thursday, 21st March, when students and parents  are invited to visit Faculties, see displays, experiments, role plays etc and talk to staff and students about subjects and courses available.  Presentations, in the School Hall, take place at 6.15 and 7.15pm.  Visitors may tour the school with prefects or make their way independently through the Faculties at their leisure.  Food is also available to purchase – this will save you making dinner when you get home!

The run-up to the Y7-9 Eisteddfod has already begun with students bringing in decorated cakes, art and craft work etc to be judged.  Music auditions have taken place this week in the Music Department and the finalists will appear at the Eisteddfod on Friday 22nd February.  Winners will be announced at the end of the day when the Bard will also be chaired.


MESSAGE FROM MCSFA

2/2/2019

We have a busy year ahead raising funds for our school through supporting, as well as holding, events.  So far we have raised £1,500 to pay for the MILK app 2019/2020, but this year we are ambitiously aiming to raise a further £8,000 towards a canopy over the new outdoor classroom.  This space will also be used by the students during break time and become a dry area near the bus bay.  We are also aiming to support the PE FAculty with funds to help with transport to and from extracurricular sporting events and looking to match fund a grant for the PEA Faculty.

This is far more than we normally commit to so we are planning a Dinner & Promise Auction on Friday 5th April, 2019.

We need your promises!  Anything from experiences and artworks, to workshops or holiday homes, whatever you think would make a good auction promise.   If you can offer a promise please email it in to us via moncompfriends@gmail.com.  Look out for ticket sales next March.


MCC PUBLIC CONSULTATIONS

1/2/2019

The local authority has now launched a formal consultation on the review of secondary school catchment areas.  In particular, there are proposals to amend the secondary school catchment boundaries for Monmouth Comprehensive and King Henry VIII Comprehensive schools.

If agreed, the proposals will be implemented from September 2020, and, therefore, it is the children and young people that are attending/living within the catchment area for Goytre, Usk, Llandogo and Trellech primary schools that will be affected.

Details of the full consultation can be found at https://www.monmouthshire.gov.uk/catchmentconsultation

Alongside this, MCC are consulting on changes to the Admission Policy, with particular reference to the oversubscription criteria.  Details of this consultation can be found at https://www.monmouthshire.gov.uk/admissionconsultation


SCHOOL CLOSED - FRIDAY 1ST FEBRUARY

1/2/2019

Monmouth Comprehensive School is closed due to health and safety issues.

As many staff are unable to reach Monmouth, my main responsibility is to ensure the safety of students and staff on site.
