Our School’s philosophy

Our philosophy is founded on the belief that every child is an individual and with encouragement, hard work and praise can develop their potential to the full and achieve high standards.

It is the responsibility of the school to provide a secure and nurturing environment where pupils enjoy learning and grow into confident and happy individuals ready to face the diversity of future challenges and capable of making informed choices and decisions.

Small class sizes for outstanding private education

Class sizes are small Benedict House, with usually only a maximum of 20 pupils in a class. This means that your child will receive a personal private education that will be tailored to their needs. Our skilled and dedicated teachers are able to identify and work with our families to solve those issues that go frequently unnoticed in larger state and independent schools.

If you would like your child to receive the best possible start to their school life then a private education at Benedict House is a great choice.

"We are absolutely certain and well aware that Riverston would go a thousand of extra miles for our son, as you and your colleagues have always done with so much perseverance and dedication : Dario would have not been able to get any GCSE without you, and this is a fact for which we will be always deeply grateful,."
