Prep School Life

Monkton Prep - where individual talent is met with opportunity

Prep School children with their Tudor Houses

Perched on the edge of the Midford Valley in a World Heritage City you will find Bath’s only day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 7-13 and prepare pupils for Scholarship and Common Entrance examinations. We expect high standards of academic ability, however we also believe that every child has something to offer and have a strong tradition of inclusivity.

All pupils are given an equal chance to get involved, get stuck in, whatever their gifts. 

Sailing, golf, chess, horse riding, cricket, hockey, drama, tennis, swimming -  the list really is endless and the days are busy. These activities provide immense enjoyment and pleasure for our pupils, but they are also the key to supporting a guiding principle of a Monkton education: the development of character.  Confidence, motivation, enthusiasm, drive, creativity, resilience, team work, risk-taking, sensitivity, leadership, self-awareness – these are all qualities that cannot easily be measured and not all of them, by any means, can be developed only within the classroom. 

We hope that the key principles of allowing all pupils to reach their academic potential, giving children the opportunity to excel and be involved, to create an environment that places strong emphasis on the development of character and personality and the nurturing of true Christian values, including service and respect, will endure.

Monkton Prep School is an extremely happy place, with a warm and nurturing community. Our pupils chose to show this by making their own version of Pharrell Williams' song Happy.  We hope you enjoy it.
