Opportunities to visit the school and experience it for yourself
St Benedict’s is a co-educational school rich in tradition and yet one which embraces change to ensure it remains at the forefront of education in the twenty-first century.
Our Mission of ‘Teaching a way of living’ is at the core of the holistic Catholic education that is provided to boys and girls throughout the School from Nursery through to Sixth Form.
We nurture their growth and prepare them for future challenges in an increasingly secular world. Recent Inspections by ISI (November 2009) and Westminster Diocese (2010) have endorsed our success in fulfilling the school’s aims. St Benedict’s is committed to supporting all children to develop their full potential and has a proud academic record.
The Junior School and Nursery provide a supportive, friendly and vibrant co-educational environment. Your child’s educational journey begins and the seeds of our Benedictine ethos are planted, nurtured and given every opportunity to flourish. In the Nursery a carefully planned and child-centred programme enables and extends learning and development. The Junior School provides a broad and balanced curriculum based on a rigorous academic core and with extensive opportunities in music, art, sport and drama. Sharing excellent facilities with the Senior School and participating in cross-curricular activities helps ease the transition at 11+.
There has been huge investment in buildings and facilities, including the award winning £6.2 million Cloisters complex, opened in October 2008. Recent projects have included the provision of a full size all-weather facility at the playing fields and a new science laboratory. Further plans include an extension to the Library and major classroom development in the Junior School.
