Head’s message

At Benedict House, you will find a caring environment in which all children feel relaxed and at home and where staff get to know every child in the school, and not just those in their own classes. This ensures children are happy, motivated to achieve and enthusiastic about their learning.

Our children achieve highly in the classroom, on the sports field, on the stage and in the music department and we believe this is down not only to our fantastic pupils and inspiring teachers but to the family atmosphere you will find at the school.

Everything that happens at Benedict House has our pupils and their individual needs at heart and I very much hope you will take the time to come and visit us.
