St Benedict's has a proud tradition of excellence in academics, sport and culture built on foundation of Christian values. The strength of our school lies in our staff, boys and parents! Over the last sixty years St Benedict’s has grown from a tiny boys’ school on a smallholding in Bedfordview to one of the premier boys schools in South Africa.
1958 A group of Catholic priests start a school for boys in Bedfordview. The goal of 400 boys was achieved in 1988.
2004 The new building for the Junior Prep School opens with 4 classes per grade and a maximum of 25 boys per class.
2017 118 boys sit the National Senior Certificate exam and achieve a 100% matric pass rate for the 43rd consecutive year!
2018 St Benedict's turns 60 and has 1400 learners!
