St Benedict’s School
St Benedict’s is London’s leading independent Catholic co-educational school, situated in leafy Ealing. The school is a successful blend of the traditional and the innovative. Boys and girls aged 3 to 18 thrive in a caring, happy community, benefiting from a seamless education, inspirational teaching and exceptional pastoral care.
St Benedict’s has strong academic standards, with an emphasis on intellectual curiosity and independent learning. The school is committed to supporting all children to develop their full potential, by treating them as individuals, and catering for their particular needs and talents at every stage.
We encourage principled leadership, resilience and character in our pupils, and promote the Christian values of integrity, fairness and generosity to others. Our values and approach appeal not only to Catholics but to families of different faiths and of no faith. There is an active voluntary service programme in the local community and regular fundraising for a range of charities.
At St Benedict’s, there is a vital focus on personal development, and our outstanding co-curricular programme helps pupils to excel in the things they enjoy. St Benedict’s has a distinguished sporting tradition: many boys and girls train and compete at county and national level, and everyone is encouraged to enjoy sport, teamwork and fitness. Music and Drama are both excellent; there is a strong choral tradition and many instrumental ensembles. Recent drama productions have recently included Amadeus and Les Misérables.
The Junior School and Nursery provide a supportive and vibrant environment in which to learn. Sharing excellent facilities with the Senior School and a programme of cross-curricular activities help ease the transition at 11+ to the Senior School, which is on the same site.
Recent developments include a new Junior School building and a fine new Sixth Form Centre and Art Department.
