The curriculum: At Monkton Pre-Prep we help children to make the transition from home to school as gentle as possible. We firmly believe that close relationships between parents, staff and children are vital. Our brand new building provides a stimulating child-centered curriculum in a safe and vibrant learning environment with outdoor learning integrated into the day to day activities of our children’s learning. As pupils move up to Monkton Prep, they are encouraged to strive for academic excellence whilst developing a love of learning. Our independent status allows our staff to maintain flexibility to choose new developments in education while preserving traditional standards. In the Prep School the syllabus in each subject is aimed at the requirements of National Curriculum up to the end of Year 6, and also the Common Entrance and Scholarship examinations at 13+.
Extra curricular activities: Monkton aims to inspire confidence and a ‘give it a go’ attitude to its pupils, and we are continually trying to develop the after-school activities programme to give each child a chance to experience something different, or to pursue excellence.
Pastoral care: The happiness and well-being of each child is central to what we do. Monkton thinks differently. We start with a proactive pastoral environment to develop academically strong learners within a living Christian ethos.
