Culture at St Benedict's

At St Benedict’s, we believe in a holistic education and highly value academic achievement as well as full participation in sport and cultural activities. The four cornerstones of a St Benedict’s education include: academics, religion, sport and culture. Working together, these four cornerstones will mould your son’s mind, sculpt his soul, build his body and hone his heart. He will be encouraged to perform to his full potential in the classroom and on the sports field to make the most of his many talents. St Benedict’s is a school where your son will flourish.

A VARIETY OF Cultural activities

A strong emphasis on music

As an integral part of any young boy’s aural and mathematical development, we place a strong emphasis on music tuition. The music programme at St Benedict’s allows many boys to learn individual instruments, which cultivates freedom and expression in an ethos of discipline and precision.

Opportunities for young thespians

Our Drama Department offers young thespians both internal and external opportunities to develop their directing and acting talents.
