Monkton Combe School opens
25 June 2016
On the 25 June Allchurches Grants Officer, Paul Playford, attended the official opening of the new Art and Design Centre at Monkton Combe Senior School near Bath.
Founded in 1868, Monkton Combe School originally provided education for children of clergy and missionaries working overseas. Much has changed at the school over the years, however, Monkton remains close to the Christian values and principles upon which it was originally founded.
In 2015 ATL awarded the school a grant towards this project, which is part of an ambitious programme of improvement of facilities at Monkton.
After the event Paul said “Monkton School has a strong Christian tradition and high educational standards, and it is evident that the staff are passionate about what they do. This new centre will greatly enhance what they can offer their pupils and the wider community, who are also able to benefit from the school’s facilities.”
