  • There are also work experience trips, including one to a world-leading cancer research facility in Toulouse.
  • MTS boys have a strong record in foreign language theatre, with Sixth Formers winning Best Play at the Independent Schools’ French Drama competition in both 2017 and 2019. In 2020 an MTS pupil won the award for Best Actor.  
  • The department offers strong support to boys’ Oxbridge applications and in 2021 two Sixth Formers won places to study languages-related courses there, one at Oxford and one at Cambridge.
