Our school

Welcome From The Executive Head

Welcome to St Benedict’s and thank you for your interest in our school. St Benedict’s is an independent Catholic school for boys that seeks to develop holistic, well-educated young men.

Mr Andre Oosthuysen – Executive Head

There are many reasons to recommend our school to prospective boys and their parents:

  • We are an acclaimed, high-functioning school with competent, proactive and visionary governors and leaders; a full-time chaplain and well-qualified, quality academic and sporting staff who are personally-invested and prepared to go the extra mile.
  • We provide a holistic, values-based and boy-centred education based on the four pillars of academics, religion, sport and the arts.
  • We are geared towards full participation by all and strive to meet the highest possible academic and extracurricular standards.
  • We endeavour to provide boys with a rich, individualised and meaningful 14-year experience that starts in Grade 0 and extends all the way through to matric.
  • We are a disciplined, diverse, inclusive and transforming South African community that seeks inspiration from and is strengthened by the timeless beliefs, standards and traditions of our Catholic ethos and draws upon our legacy of a 60-year track record.
  • We are a well-resourced school with world-class facilities located in the upscale, leafy suburb of Bedfordview, with additional campuses in Linbro Park and the Magaliesburg.
  • We enjoy the reputation of providing exceptional value for money.
  • We keep abreast with the latest educational developments and trends by investing substantially in staff professional development and information technology.

St Benedict’s is a school that understands boys and encourages them to perform to their full potential; a school where your son – with all of his talents and idiosyncrasies – can flourish.
