What says..

A happy place, where much is expected and much achieved. Staff, and therefore pupils, work to the highest Christian principles of honest work, self-discipline and concern for the needs of others. ‘It teaches how to be a good person,’ said one firmly non-Christian parent, ‘and allows children to be accepted and to make their own minds up.’

What the school says...

Monkton Prep is a most exciting place to live and work. It is a real privilege to play such an important part in the development of the young children that have been entrusted to our care.

Maintaining the delicate balance between academic success and personal development is one of the School's great strengths. From the tiny two-year olds in the Pre-Prep to the teenagers in the Prep School, the happiness of every child is of paramount importance. ...Read more

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Special Education Needs

Learning support at Monkton is done in three ways. In-class support, one to one tuition in a specially equipped room, one to 5/6 group work. The three staff (one full time, two part-time) are trained to help children with mild/moderate learning difficulties. Learning support is charged as an extra. The school is also used by the Bath Dyslexia Institute as an 'outpost'. Extra help is given to dyslexic pupils as well as a range of other learning difficulties. 09-09
