The School day

The School Day

Our school gates open at 8:30am, with registration beginning at 8:45am. The school day finishes at 3:30pm, at which time a superb selection of after-school clubs is on offer for your child to participate in. Please find out more on our Co-Curricular page.


Homework is considered a very important feature of the education offered by the school, and you are advised that as your child progresses throughout the school, they will be required to complete more homework. The time allocated will vary according to age.

The School Library supports many of the subjects in the curriculum. In addition, we make use of educational television programmes and DVDs. Journeys to places of interest, both historical and general, are arranged for all classes.

The school offers a morning care and after school care scheme to assist working parents. The school opens at 7.30am and closes at 6.00pm for this purpose.

Valuable information for parents to keep you in the know

Providing you with regular updates and keeping you in the know is part of what we do at Benedict House. Written reports are prepared at the end of the year and during the year a formal parents’ evening is arranged in the Autumn and Spring terms so that you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress with their Class Teacher and view their class work.

"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,."
