An Outstanding Church School

Welcome to Bishop Monkton Church of England School  

Welcome to Bishop Monkton CE Primary School.  We are very proud of our school and delighted to be sharing it with you.  Our aim is to provide all children with an enjoyable learning experience in which they thrive.

Education is a journey, not a race and we are in the privileged position to be able to shape that journey with your children.  Along the way we have plenty of fun, with a varied and interesting curriculum that will bring out the best in your child. But don’t take my word for it!


Come and visit and see for yourselves what our children are achieving. Please feel free to contact the school to make an appointment and I would be delighted to show you around.

Thank you for visiting!

Mrs Sally A. Cowling
