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.

Welsh as a Second language is taught to all students in Years 7 to 11 and AS and A2 Levels are also offered to Sixth Form students. 20% of the population of Wales speak Welsh fluently and this figure is rising. Amongst 3 to 15 year olds, the figure is 40%.
Research shows that understanding more than one language allows us to think more flexibly and creatively. Learning Welsh opens the door to experiencing a different culture of music, literature, TV and radio. A qualification in Welsh is now widely sought for careers including the Welsh Government and Local Government, the media and teaching.
At MCS, students are given many opportunities to use their Welsh outside lessons. The weekly Clwb Cymraeg (Welsh Club) holds a variety of activities.
There are also regular visits to the Urdd Centres in Llangrannog and in Cardiff Bay and trips are arranged to the Millennium Stadium to watch Wales playing football and rugby.
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.
