The Higher Education and Careers Department is overseen by the Head of the Sixth Form. In addition to providing some excellent resources to help students make choices (starting from the 3rd Form onwards with Careers lessons in PSHE), part of the key skills and enrichment course taken by year 12 students includes a careers component.

In partnership with Monmouth School for Girls, a Careers and Gap Convention and UCAS and Higher Education Evening is organised each year. Oxbridge candidates at both schools are given intensive preparation for Admissions Tests, guidance about interview technique, and have practice interviews at the “away” school. The Monmouth School for Boys Higher Education and Careers Team, Sixth Form Tutors, Housemasters, Heads of Department and subject teachers are always willing to give students support. Other staff specialise in specific areas such as Medicine, Law and Engineering.

Almost all pupils at Monmouth School for Boys go on to university with the vast majority (normally in excess of 90%) achieving their firm or insurance choice offers. There is a long tradition of boys who go onto Oxford or Cambridge. Usually around 60% of the boys will go onto Russell Group universities, with many also going onto Medical or Dental School.  Support is also provided for those boys who decide university is not the next step for them when leaving the Sixth Form. Furthermore, the school is always happy to offer advice and guidance at any stage to students or former students about their higher education or careers options.
