If my child has left one school mid-way through the term, how do you manage the transition?
We liaise closely with all previous schools and make sure that all coursework and results are sent to Kings Monkton. We also assess, subject by subject what the pupil’s specific needs are and what topics they may need extra help with. Our staff are always happy to give extra time to pupils who need more input to bring them up to date with the subjects we teach.

When can we visit?
We host several open days throughout the year, but are happy to organise individual visits at a mutually convenient time. We also offer taster days for children to attend before they start full time. If you’d like to arrange a visit please get in touch.
