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.

The Additional Needs Team supports students with a wide range of needs thoughout the School. In accordance with the School's aim to be a fully inclusive community, we are able to provide support for students with specific and moderate learning challenges.
The Additional Needs Team is led by the Assistant Headteacher - Inclusion, who looks at the needs of the students as they enter our school and supports the progress and development of students as they advance through school. The Assistant Headteacher - Inclusion leads a teacher and a group of fully trained and experienced Learning Support Assistants who work with the students in a variety of contexts.
Special Needs Resource Base Programmes are run alongside Monmouthshire Local Authority to meet the needs of learners with complex ASD, speech, language and communication difficulties, physical and medical difficulties and severe learning difficulties. Individualised programmes of learning are developed with parents, the learner and other profesisonals, to mee individual needs.
Students with additional needs are taught mainly within mainstream classes. We recognise that students develop and learn when they feel comfortable, valued and safe. Therefore, a number of provisions are available, dependant upon the needs of individual students.
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.
