Monkton is a very special and unusual place, as you will see if you come to visit. Our pupils are grounded, real and kind but equally they are thoughtful, diligent and ambitious in their goals.

So what’s different about Monkton? Aside from the stunning views, outstanding academic exam results and passionate teachers which many schools boast, Monkton focuses on the journey of each individual in a way that is tangibly different.

As pioneers in pastoral tracking, Monkton holds true to the belief that self-discovery is the key to success; not only do happy children learn but they also explore their strengths and weaknesses, develop resilience and face challenges with greater strength. We believe in the power of failure of taking on challenges, accepting this will mean you get some things wrong and become better people because of that.

No writing, no booklet, no website will ever capture something so hard to describe; you have to come and meet us yourselves.
