Welcome to Monmouth Comprehensive School, and to our website.
We are absolutely determined to provide an exceptional standard of education for every child that comes to our school, so that they have the opportunity to lead happy and successful lives. In order for that to happen, our students need to do two simple things - work hard and be kind.
We are a welcoming and caring school that also has exceedingly high expectations of every single one of our students. We take great pride in enabling them to grow and to flourish.
About the school
The School’s Heart – our Vision and Values.
The school has built its practice and provision on the vision and belief of ‘Learning to Lead our Lives’. ‘Learning to Lead our Lives’ is about young people becoming independent, self-aware and resilient.
We have created a learning environment where every individual is able to develop a range of academic, vocational, technical, emotional and spiritual skills. Our approach is holistic and built around the child.
We know that confidence and self-esteem form the platform of success for every child. Recognition and celebration are fundamental to our practice. ‘Knowing every child and knowing them well’ is very important to us.
Our skills focus, with exploratory learning about ‘How’ to learn as well as ‘What’ to learn, supports every student in developing their own approaches. Our teaching is strategic and rigorous, building on students’ strengths and unique ways of learning.
Our Integrated Curriculum, the ‘spine’ of our school, allows every student to form, with their teachers, a deep and meaningful learning relationship. The ‘relationship’ and the quality of relationship is what matters.
The school works for and with its community. We have worked to create a shared understanding of how we will provide the very best nurture for all our children who are our most precious resource and our future. We know it ‘takes a village to raise a child’.
At our school we have a culture of creating the very best for every child and know that belief, values and culture drive our success. Our vision is rooted in our values. The whole school community – students, staff, governors, parents alongside the wider community created our values. They are:- Success, Independence, Respect, Security and Freedom with Independence. These values are to be found in all our work and form the framework around which learning is created within the vision.
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.
