Monkton is an independent co-educational boarding and day school with a lively Christian ethos, situated in the beautiful Midford Valley just a mile from the World Heritage City of Bath. Monkton stands for traditional and lasting Christian family values in a vibrant and nurturing community. We encourage the development of every child academically, spiritually and emotionally to enable them to go out into the world and play a part in transforming the community and society around them.
Boarding is at the very heart of Monkton, and the unique atmosphere of the School is enjoyed by boarders and day pupils alike. All the Houses reflect the spirit and ethos of the School, but each exudes its own personality generated by its pupils, houseparents and staff as well as by its size, individual geography and location within the School. We take high academic standards as a given. Yes, many of our pupils achieve excellent grades at both GCSE and A-level, but we are just as concerned to create a genuine appetite for learning, in helping pupils develop minds that are open and questioning and in equipping them with the independent study skills that will enable them to follow through private passions and enthusiasms long after they have left school. Indeed our £4.1m Maths and Science Centre at the Senior School is proving to be an exceptional facility for teaching, learning and research for pupils at all levels. A new Music School will be ready for use by pupils in early 2012 and will include an 80 seat rehearsal hall with digital recording facilities, 12 instrumental teaching and practice rooms and air-conditioned percussion, rock and recording studios. In 2014, we opened a new Art & Design Centre to support an an increase in popularity amongst Monkton pupils for creative subjects. For our pupils at Monkton, life is very busy and we run a full programme of activities every weekend. There is always something for our pupils to do at weekends once they have finished their Saturday morning lessons and fulfilled any sporting commitments. We believe that educating young people means helping them develop all their gifts, whether this is playing the trombone, acting or rowing, learning leadership skills through the Combined Cadet Force, or working within a sports team. The range of activities is exciting and there really is something for everyone – from ballroom dancing to chess to fencing. Monkton not only transforms the lives of its pupils but is also undertaking an exciting and ambitious programme of development, which can only be described as transformational, across all areas of the school, embracing buildings, facilities and grounds, curricular and extracurricular programmes. Our outstanding pastoral care, strong moral framework and culture of service to others make us an ideal choice for parents looking for a school that will nurture and challenge their child spiritually, emotionally and socially as well as developing their academic potential to the full.
