What the school says...
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 to Sixth Form. The school welcomes children of other Christian denominations and other faiths.
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. Sharing excellent facilities with the Senior School and participating in cross-curricular activities helps to ease the transition at 11+ to the Senior School.
A wide range of co-curricular activities is offered including music, drama and opportunities for Christian service. The Junior School runs a programme of after-school hobbies. St Benedicts is renowned for its sporting tradition and has a national reputation for rugby. Whilst promoting the highest sporting aspirations, the school is committed to sport for all. ...Read more

Special Education Needs
At St Benedict's School we generally accept pupils who are of average or above average ability. We operate a sibling policy which can extend to below average on occasions. Children of past pupils and members of staff are also given priority which can affect the entry criteria. We cater for mixed ability and offer support for pupils with a range of needs including dyslexia and dyspraxia. However,we are not able to provide support for pupils with significant or severe difficulties. At present we do not have any statemented pupils at the Junior School.
