International Students

An integral part of the Monkton community

Students from overseas have been an important part of Monkton for many years. At present, we have students from about 15 different countries. Students settle into boarding really quickly with the help of their Houseparents, their Tutors and their 'buddies' - a pupil who will show them the ropes and support them in those first few weeks when everything is so unfamiliar.

The friendships made across the different cultures are one of the great strengths of being a boarder here at Monkton. Overseas students can join the International Student Society which provides a social focus for all the students in the school who wish to share their international perspective. The society organises cultural events and trips to some wonderful locations in the UK and also invites visiting speakers.


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 barbeque to name but a few and these together with the music, drama and sporting competitions keep the students extremely busy at weekends! They can also enjoy the school productions, DVD nights, Pearce Centre parties, junior discos and informal concerts - there is almost too much to choose from.
