I have found there is a perfect balance of independence and support in Monmouth Schools Sixth Form.

We are taught well but we have freedom to carry out our own research and are expected to learn independently away from the classroom as you would at university.

The Sixth Form is ideal for students joining the schools because it feels like a new environment for all of us and it’s very exciting.

Co-educational classes in the Sixth Form started in September 2018 and the girls enjoy having our lessons with the boys because we get a wider range of views in discussions.

I have a good relationship with my teachers and I know they have respect for me. They want me to do well in my studies at school and beyond.

The food is great here and lunch is always a talking point. We are never disappointed by the quality of the food or the variety.  I also enjoy eating, socialising and relaxing in the joint café.

We have a lot of clubs and activities available to us as well as joint trips, social events and community projects.

I am taking A levels in Biology, PE and Business and I am hoping to study Rural Surveying at Hartpury College or at The Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester.
