View the Open Day programme and plan your day to get the most from your visit.

Our Open Day is a great opportunity to come and see St Benedict’s for yourself from the people who know it best: our staff, pupils and even some Alumni. You can also explore the school grounds and buildings, learn more about the range of academic programmes available and ask questions about admissions, boarding and school life.

You will be able to view all our campuses, which can also help you plan your journey if you are visiting us in person.

Please note we are a no smoking campus. Should you need a cigarette break, please make your way off campus.

Parking is available inside the grounds for College and Preparatory Open Day visit and for Junior Preparatory you can park on Kings Road.
