The curriculum: As Monkton’s outstanding exam results over the last few years demonstrate, inspiring academic ambition is one of our key priorities. Our students work hard and are well motivated. They are supported and encouraged through the care and enthusiasm of our teachers, who are committed to delivering lessons that are lively and enjoyable, as well as rigorous and demanding.
Extra curricular activities: The wide range of activities, clubs and societies available enable each pupil to find areas of enjoyment that both motivate and give them confidence. However, the thinking and planning behind our diverse programme goes beyond the activities themselves. Whilst we hope to inspire the next Olympic rower, poet laureate or national fencing champion, we also use our activity programme to teach our pupils the skills they need for life and the characteristics necessary for today’s working environment.
Pastoral care: Monkton thinks differently. We start with a proactive pastoral environment, ensuring every one of our students knows and fully understands themselves, everything else if built from that and, as our outstanding exam results over the last few years demonstrate, our approach works.
Name of Principal: Mr Chris Wheeler
Outstanding characteristics: Monkton is a deliberately smaller school which enables us to consider each of our pupils as individuals. First and foremost we focus on how much a child knows about or understands themselves; everything else is built from that.
