 Parent survey, April 2022

"I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you how impressed I was with the carol concert. Both the ingenuity of the teaching staff in coming up with such a clever new way of telling the story of the Nativity and also the children’s amazing stories, I thought the writing was outstanding. You and the staff at St Benedict’s have created a really special learning environment which the children are clearly thriving in, you can tell that from the sea of happy faces I was surrounded by that day but also from the way they are able to express themselves."

Maxine, Drama teacher

"What a pleasure your year 6’s are. They are a lovely group, the best school we have visited so far. The children had a lovely, polite manner, they looked after each other and generally were lovely to meet and chat with."

“St. Ben’s is more than a school.  It’s a great place for getting amazing opportunities, such as meeting famous authors or going on school trips.  When I first came to St. Ben’s, I was really nervous, but all of the staff and children made me feel so secure and happy.  This school is a great place!”
