Sixth Form life at Monmouth School is very different from what boys will have experienced before, either lower down the School, or elsewhere. From the outset, pupils are treated as young adults who have greater independence than previously and who have a distinct identity within the School. This is demonstrated by the existence of the Sixth Form Centre for the exclusive use of Sixth Form pupils, in the more flexible uniform regulations, and in the style of learning and teaching that is offered.
We are proud of our Sixth Form pupils, both in terms of their achievements and their status as leaders and role models for the younger pupils at Monmouth School. I would always hope that new members of the Sixth Form will acknowledge their privileged position and will behave accordingly, recognising that with privilege comes responsibility. We do expect our Sixth Formers to provide a lead for the younger pupils, in their dress, their studies and – simply – in the way they represent the School.
I hope that you will find this Handbook useful, and that it will encourage you to explore the Sixth Form at Monmouth School further. All information in this booklet is correct at the time of going to press, but recent and ongoing changes to A Level syllabuses and structures mean that it may be the case that some departments will move from what is outlined here over the next year. Please do take the opportunity to discuss specific subject issues with the relevant Heads of Department, or to contact me if I can be of any further assistance.
Thank you for your interest in the Sixth Form at Monmouth School.
Mr James Boiling, Head of Sixth Form
