Setting standards for life

Monkton Combe School, just a mile from the World Heritage City of Bath, is an independent, co-educational boarding and day school for pupils aged 2-18. We pride ourselves on our lively Christian ethos, excellent exam results and our strong pastoral care. At Monkton, we are setting standards for life; giving young people the qualities of character they need to become trusted employees, inspiring leaders and valued friends. Boarding is at the very heart of Monkton, and the unique atmosphere of the School is enjoyed by boarders and day pupils alike. All the houses reflect the spirit and ethos of the School, but each exudes its own personality generated by its pupils, houseparents and staff.

A broad and varied curriculum

As shown by Monkton's outstanding exam results over the last five years fulfilling academic potential is one of our key priorities. However Monkton thinks differently, we start with a proactive pastoral environment to develop academically strong enthusiastic learners within a living Christian ethos. Our students work hard and are well motivated, being supported and encouraged through the care and enthusiasm of our gifted teachers, who are committed to delivering lessons that are lively and enjoyable, as well as being rigorous and demanding. Strategies for supporting gifted and talented students are well established and are continually updated and extended.

Busy days and full weekends

One of Monkton's strengths is the breadth of activities available to pupils at weekends - in fact, many of our day pupils will spend all weekend at school just so they can join in the Monkton social life. Every Saturday afternoon there is a full programme of sporting activities which follow on after morning lessons. There are some brilliant social events hosted by the houses throughout the year - a bonfire party, a summer fete, a barbecue, to name but a few - and these, together with the music, drama and sporting competitions, keep the students extremely busy. They can also enjoy the School productions, DVD nights, sixth form centre parties, junior discos and informal concerts - there is almost too much to choose from!

Transforming lives

Our outstanding pastoral care, strong moral framework and culture of service to others make us an ideal choice for parents looking for a school that will nurture and challenge their child spiritually, emotionally and socially as well as developing their academic potential to the full. We aim to instil our values of confidence, integrity, humility and service in all of our pupils.
