Headmaster's Welcome

St Benedict’s has always understood that education is about enriching lives. Like every excellent school, we enable boys and girls to achieve outstanding academic success, to discern their chosen career path and to gain access to top universities. St Benedict’s stands out because it goes well beyond this, by helping children to grow as people, socially, emotionally and spiritually. Here, they are valued as individuals and therefore think as individuals; they discover their unique talents and interests, and develop personal qualities such as resilience, resourcefulness, empathy and imagination. They learn what they have to offer the world and attain the confidence to show principled leadership.

The qualities of a holistic education - breadth, inspiration and challenge - have never been more important than they are now. I do hope you will come and visit us, to find out more about what we can offer your son or daughter.
