Monkton Combe School is an independent Christian mixed boarding and day school near Bathmarker, England. The Senior School is located in the village of Monkton Combemarker, while the Prep School, Pre-Prep and Nursery are in Combe Downmarker on the southern outskirts of Bath.

The Senior School was founded in 1868 by the then Vicar of Monkton Combe, the Reverend Francis Pocock. The Junior School was established with four pupils by a Mrs Howard (the daughter of the Senior School Principal) in a private house in Church Road, Combe Down in 1888 and moved into its current purpose-built premises in June 1907. The Pre-prep was added in 1929. In 1992, the School became fully co-educational, merging with Clarendon School for Girls, Bedford. In 2006 the Junior School was renamed Monkton Prep School.

The official history of the school's first century is A Goodly Heritage: A History of Monkton Combe School 1868-1967 by A.F. Lace, published in Bath by Sir Isaac Pitman & Sons, 1968.

The Senior School (current pupil numbers are around 350) admits children from age 11 through to 18; the Prep School admits children from age 7 to 13 and the Pre-Prep has classes in Kindergarten (3–4), Reception (4–5) and Years 1 and 2 (5–7). The Nursery provides pre-school care (ages 2-3). The Senior School and Prep School both have a strong boarding tradition; however, day pupils comprise one third of the intake of the Senior School and are in the majority in the Prep School.

In 2008 the Senior School completed re-building, extending and re-furbishing its Mathematics and Science departments.

Several of the buildings are listed, including the main or old block known as The Old Farm, and the part of the Terrace Block known as The Old - Vicarage.
