School Life

Pastoral care is paramount

Schools are not buildings, websites or visions statements; they are people.

Monkton has an extraordinary ethos in which a culture of self discovery is underpinned by powerful pastoral provision to ensure that above all else pupils know who they are. We celebrate failure, reflect on our mistakes and constantly strive to do better. We build confidence, explore the world around us and develop curiosity.

Monkton is a deliberately smaller school (400 pupils) which sits comfortably amongst it Rugby group peers as offering the very best all round experience possible. No individual gets lost at Monkton; being smaller means no one gets lost in the cracks. Not only can pupils take part in a huge range of activities, unlike so many schools where the same 10% of pupils do 90% of what happens, at Monkton, 90% do. We are a busy vibrant school where everyone ends the term exhausted but fulfilled and, thanks to our market leading pastoral care, happy.

No website will capture a school but this is especially true of Monkton. If any of the above strikes a chord, do come and visit; I would love you to feel it in person.
