School tours for new applicants starting in September 2024 are now available. Please contact the school office to book your place on a tour.
On behalf of the pupils, staff and governors I would like to warmly welcome you to our website. I hope that your visit is informative and gives you an insight into the learning that takes place in our school and the values and vision which underpin it.
At St. Benedict’s we are a Catholic community committed to providing a consistently safe, positive, rewarding and happy learning environment. We have high expectations for the children in our care and aim to encourage them to learn, develop and grow into responsible, spiritual young people within a climate of respect, warmth and understanding underpinned by the Gospel values. We are proud of the successes our children have achieved, both academically, and also in sporting and musical events. We provide an exciting curriculum that prepares children to become active members of society. We aim to inspire all of our pupils, to rise to the challenges that will enable them to develop the skills and personal qualities they need, in order to embrace the future with confidence and to become successful life-long learners.
Our school has strong links with our parish church, St. Simon Stock Parish, Walderslade which enhances the spiritual and moral development of the community we serve. Our Parish Priest, Father Pawel, helps and guides the children in their religious journey through Mass celebrations, penitential services, the Sacrament of Reconciliation and class talks.
We have an excellent, committed staff who are dedicated to each and every pupil and a wonderful group of governors who ensure the children are at the heart of all our decision making. We work in partnership with the parents who are very supportive and we have a thriving parent association (SBA).
We look forward to working with you. Please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries you may have.
Mrs. S. L. McAlpine
