St Benedict's is London's leading independent Catholic co-educational school. Our Mission of 'Teaching a way of living' is at the core of the holistic education that is provided throughout the School from Nursery to Sixth Form.
St Benedict's is committed to supporting all children to develop their full potential and has a distinguished academic record. In August 2015, The Telegraph included St Benedict's among its list of 'ten best value private schools in the UK', the only London school to be included. The school welcomes children of other Christian denominations and other faiths.
The Junior School and Nursery provide a supportive, friendly and vibrant co-educational environment. Sharing excellent facilities with the Senior School and participating in cross-curricular activities helps ease the transition at 11+ to the Senior School. Older pupils are encouraged to think and express themselves creatively, to work independently and to take pride in their achievements. In the Sixth Form students are encouraged to take on leadership roles and all contribute to a variety of projects, which raise funds for communities across the world.
The school is committed to providing the best possible facilities for teaching and learning. The latest development, the Sixth Form Centre and Art & Design building, was opened in January 2016.
St Benedict's is renowned for its sporting tradition and has a national reputation for rugby. Whilst promoting the highest sporting aspirations, the school is committed to sport for all. A wide range of co-curricular activities is offered including music, drama and opportunities for Christian service.
St Benedict's School is unique. We are an extended family in which pupils can thrive and we are proud of our cohesive community. Come and visit and see what we have to offer. You can be sure of a warm Benedictine welcome.
