The normal points of entry into St Benedict's are at the Preparatory School level in Grade R/Pregrade level or at the College level in Grade 8. It is primarily in these grades, however, that St Benedict's is generally oversubscribed. Admission is possible in other grades only if and when vacancies occur. School-readiness (Grades 0 - 3) or entrance examinations (Grades 4 - 10) are written by all applicants. In 2010, a record number of prospective Grade 8 boys applied for admission into the College. Usually new boys are not accepted into Grade 11 or 12.
Parents seeking to make application to St Benedict's for the admission of their sons should do so as early as possible.
The Junior Preparatory School caters for a total of 400 boys, the Preparatory School for 400 and the College for a total of 620 boys. Average class sizes are 25 boys to a class from Grade R to Grade 7. At Grade 8 and 9 level, 26 to 28 boys are accommodated in each class.
