In short, we want all of our students to flourish and our aim is to bring out the best in everyone.
Our School motto is simple:
“Excellence for All”

Kate Smith, Headteacher
At Monk’s Walk School, we want our students to develop to their fullest potential to ensure their future success and wellbeing, and to prepare them to be responsible citizens. We aim to create a friendly environment and insist on strict standards of behaviour and conduct. We want to provide a School community that is rich in variety and diversity, based on the values of mutual respect, tolerance and trust.
"Monk’s Walk School aspires to provide excellence for all, so that all students fulfil their potential – not only academically but in the broadest sense possible. We achieve this by working together".
The Learning Support Department is made up of a large team of experienced staff including teachers, teaching assistants and learning support assistants. The learning support team is based in the Student Support Centre which provides the team with a base from which to work with individuals and small groups of students. As a team we provide advice, guidance and support to students, staff and parents.
The Student Support Centre continues to undergo further improvement and has recently benefitted from the addition of a specialist visual impaired resources room. The centre is open at all times of the day, supporting students with a wide range of needs.
We offer an extensive and well organised programme of support, delivered by enthusiastic and effectively trained staff. A large proportion of the support is classroom based with our learning support assistants working closely with subject teachers to enhance the learning experience of the students. Students are also supported outside of lessons through the highly successful Prep Club, four evenings a week. The learning support department aims to work closely with parents, students and staff to ensure that all students achieve their full potential and enjoy their learning.
