In his address, the Headmaster, Andrew Johnson outlined the many events and achievements of the year. Highlighting St Benedict's 120th anniversary, he referred to the school's motto: "A minimis incipe - 'from the smallest beginnings' – is a reminder that all achievements - all great things -  begin with small steps. It has been our school’s guiding philosophy for 120 years. This powerful idea surely goes to the heart of what education should be about: potential. The potential for growth, discovery and achievement at every stage of our lives. Education is a rich and joyful journey – from the very special early years, through to senior school education, building confident knowledge, always allowing the freedom to explore what particularly inspires us at any stage."
