Welcome to the Monkton Foundation Sesquicentennial webpages.

Monkton celebrates 150 years of excellence in Independent Education since its foundation as a school by Rev Francis Pocock in 1868. The sesquicentennial year runs from January 2018 – December 2018 and aims to provide a rich and diverse year of information and events to celebrate this important milestone in the school’s history. As well as Monkton celebrating 150 years Clarendon which merged with Monkton in 1998 also celebrates 120 years since its foundation in 1898.

Within this webpage you will be able to see the calendar of events that are happening during the year. Many of the events that already take place in a busy exciting school will continue under the 150th banner but will just be bigger and better. This calendar will be regularly updated and details of how you can attend and support these will also be easily accessible.

A Delighful Inheritance - by Peter J LeRoy - Following on from A Goodly Heritage by AF Lace which charts the first 100 years of the School, Peter LeRoy's new book chronicles in depth the next 50 years from 1968 - 2017 as well as provide a summary of the main events of the years 1868 - 1968. The book costs £24.99 and is available to order from Monkton Outfitters 150th page.

One section of this webpage has been created to showcase the stories, moments, images and notable people that students, staff and alumni submit for inclusion in the timeline. This will help to build a fuller picture of the School’s history and celebrate everything that makes it so special. Your submission will be greatly received.

Sharing your experiences will play an important part in helping the School to reflect on its past, while it looks forward to its exciting future.

Being true to our foundation and ethos during this celebration year we will also be supporting a nominated charity to help those for whom life is difficult.

Please take a tour around these pages and I look forward to meeting you at any of the exciting forthcoming events.
