This film, Giving Bursary a Voice, was made as part of our 120th Anniversary Year. Throughout the 120th year St Benedict's School have highlighted the importance of offering transformational Bursary places to young people without the financial means to attend the School. Fairer futures and equal opportunities are at the heart of all fundraising at the School. This film was very generously voiced by a former pupil and Bursary recipient. We hope the film captures the positive and lifechanging impact of a Bursary place at St Benedict's.
St Benedict’s provides a well-rounded, seamless education which can begin in our Nursery and continue to the end of Sixth Form. 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. Inspirational teaching, tutorial guidance and exceptional pastoral care are at the heart of the education we offer.
We have a proud academic record of outstanding examination results and our pupils gain places at the UK’s top universities. In addition to academic success, St Benedict’s recognises the importance of educating the whole person, by encouraging principled leadership, resilience and character in our pupils, and by promoting the Christian values of integrity, fairness and generosity. This holistic approach to education is a hallmark of the School, informed by the 1500 year-old Rule of St Benedict, and there could be no better way of equipping young people for the future.
At St Benedict’s, there is a clear focus on personal development, through our outstanding co-curricular programme. St Benedict’s has a distinguished sporting tradition: while many boys and girls train and compete at county and national level, everyone is encouraged to enjoy sport, teamwork and fitness. Music and Drama are both excellent; there is a strong choral tradition, many instrumental ensembles and frequent concerts demonstrating very high levels of musicianship.
We align with the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
