Benedict House Preparatory School was founded in 1989, with the aim of providing the highest level of academic tuition to pupils. The school is co-educational, with an age range of pupils from 3 to 11 years. There is a strong emphasis on the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science utilising traditional teaching methods, yet the School is progressive in the introduction of computer technology and the learning of modern European languages from an early age. Pupils have the added benefit of small class sizes and a warm, family-style atmosphere in which to learn. The School endeavours to bring to its pupils the benefits of self-improvement and confidence through the enjoyment of school life. The structure of the School allows rapid development of all children who are prepared to work well, in partnership with their parents and the School.
