Headteacher's Welcome

A friendly welcome to Benedict House

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Benedict House Preparatory School.  I hope our website gives you a glimpse of what our school has to offer for you and your family.

Benedict House Preparatory School is known for its small class sizes, warm family environment and academic excellence.  We pride ourselves on the positive relationships we foster within our school community. I truly believe that each child achieves more if they feel valued, cared for and happy, whilst in school and beyond our school gates.  Our small class sizes allow our staff to give an individualised and well-tailored education to each child in their care.   

We guide our families through their journey with us towards their next secondary school.  These are chosen carefully and in partnership with parents. We aim to match a child’s academic ability, their character and personality to the most suitable future school.  Our children achieve highly in the classroom, on the sports field, on the stage and in our music department.  We give them many opportunities to succeed through our diverse and varied curriculum- I think this is what makes Benedict House Preparatory School so special.

I believe the best way to appreciate the type of school we are is to book a personal tour with us. From the moment you walk through our school gates you will feel a sense of calm and happiness. I would be delighted to invite you to our school, to show you around and answer any questions you may have.
