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.

IN SIXTH FORM
The decision of which university to apply to is one of the most exciting and important decisions in a Sixth Form student's life. Y13 tutors are on hand to support Sixth Formers and, in the summer term of Year 12, the formal registration process begins. This support is for all individuals, tailored to each student's needs.
A few useful websites to support students are given below. This is designed to assist with the planning and preparation prior to formal application.
