Directions to Ravens Park

Ravens Park

Ravens Park, our Preparatory School sports facility, is situated a 20 minutes drive, north along the N3 in Hilton Road, Linbro Park.

The 20-acre estate has been levelled and grassed and three turf wickets provided to cater primarily for Preparatory School Cricket - but also Preparatory School Athletics, Soccer and Rugby (and College Soccer from 2009).

In 2006 the magnificent Club House - with entertainment, catering and ablution facilities - and Caretaker's Flat - was completed.

There are extensive stables, barns and paddocks on the property. To make full use of these facilities it is hoped to increase the interest in horse-riding as an additional optional activity in the Prep School and also it is hoped that in the future the College too will take to the saddle, participating in inter-school equestrian competitions.

In 2006 Ravens Park became the new home of the St.Benedict's Scout Troop and Cub pack - when one of the barns was converted into a "Scout Hall"!

In 2007 a residence for the Preparatory School Principal was built on the property and in January 2009 an adjacent five-acre property was purchased to make provision for future additional staff housing and/or a further expansion of St Benedict's sporting facilities.
