SCHOOL CLUBS AND ACTIVITIES
We encourage all students to take part in activities that take place in our extended learning day. These courses are run by school staff or by outside coaches and trainers.
These activities supplement our curriculum and introduce a range of leisure pursuits to our young people. Our aim is that all students should learn to lead their lives through exploring what motivates them and what they enjoy.

MCS CHARITY COMMITTEE
Formed in 2001, the Charity Committee has gone from strength to strength. Led by a member of Sixth Form, the Committee supports local, national and international causes. Through the years, charities supported have included: Breast Cancer Awareness, British Heart Foundation, St David’s Foundation, Bridges Community Centre, 'Movember', Megan Baker House, Ty Hafan and the Red Cross.
Following the pandemic, the Committee are forging stronger links with local charities, to offer support wherever they can.
Previous events have included bake sales (always a keen favourite), annual Harvest and Christmas food collections for the local Food Bank, warm clothing for the homeless in Newport (co-ordinated by the Lions Club Newport) and food collections for the Welcome Trust, Cardiff. The Committee has hosted Christmas Fairs and kept romance alive with the delivery of Valentine roses and chocolates and Christmas Candy Canes.
We are always very grateful for the support given by parents for these events, particularly the bake sales where the cakes supplied are many and varied. We really couldn't do this without their support.
Children in Need, Sport Relief and Comic Relief are always well-supported by both students and their parents with figures exceeding £1000 raised annually.
The Charity Committee also support Departments with school events such as Parents' Evening, Open Evening and School Performances.
