Transition into Sixth Form

Welcome to Monmouth Comprehensive School, and to our Sixth Form. We have a strong and well-deserved reputation as one of the very best Sixth Forms in the region. Being in our sixth form is very different from Key Stage 4, and in a short and exciting two years you can transform yourself, both academically and personally, into a professional student

You are in a position to choose where you continue your education, and it is important it is to make the right choice. To support you in being the best you can be we put you at the centre of taking responsibility for your progress, developing yourself as an individual both inside and outside of our rich and varied curriculum of Level 3 A Level and vocational courses.

Beyond the classroom, Sixth Form students participate in a rich and varied extended curricular programme, including sport, music and the performing arts as well as organisations such as World Challenge and Duke of Edinburgh Award. This programme further enables each to explore their own interests, develop their character and maximise their own unique talents. We support students who are new to our school in establishing new friendships, developing resilience and becoming active members of our school community.  

Students have a strong sense of pride in being a member of the MCS community. Opportunities such as being a Prefect or mentoring younger students are fantastic ways to develop leadership skills. Sixth Form students leave us after two years of study ready to make a positive contribution to the wider world as future leaders in their own fields. 

When our Year 13 students leave us in the summer of their final year, it is clear to see that they have developed into responsible, independent young learners who are ready to take on the world. We would welcome your application to join our culture of ‘professional students’ at MCS Sixth Form.
