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.
Benedict House Preparatory School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be required to undertake an enhanced disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service
