Sixth Form announcement

Co-educational teaching in Sixth Form launched at Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools

We are launching co-educational teaching in the Sixth Form from September 2018, combining this with all the existing benefits of our excellent single-sex pastoral care.

This new structure will bring together our students from Monmouth School for Boys and Monmouth School for Girls at this crucial stage in their educational and personal development.

Sixth Form students will benefit from a wide choice of over 25 A level subjects and an innovative range of co-curricular and enrichment activities.

“The launch of co-educational teaching in the Sixth Form is an exciting and important refinement to the Monmouth Model,” said Headmaster of Monmouth School for Boys, Dr Andrew Daniel, and Headmistress of Monmouth School for Girls, Dr Caroline Pascoe.

“There are strong educational reasons for moving to this new structure. In the Sixth Form, boys and girls have similar levels of maturity and focus and will benefit from being taught together.”

Sixth Formers will be taught at both sites in co-educational classes and an adjusted timetable will allow them time to walk from one site to the other between lessons.

Mr Audley Twiston-Davies, Chairman of Governors at Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools, said: “Our vision is to deliver an exceptional all-round education for boys and girls, and our philosophy is to fulfil this aspiration by providing the best balance of single-sex and co-education at the optimum stages of our pupils’ development.

“We are delighted to launch co-ed teaching in our Sixth Form, which will greatly enhance the academic and co-curricular experiences of our students.”
