Welcome to St Benedict's Roman Catholic Primary School

Welcome back everyone!

Thank you very much to all our parents and carers for sending the children into school looking so smart!



"You will know the truth and the truth will set you free" (John 8,32)"You will know the truth and the truth will set you free" (John 8,32)

Welcome to our school website.  We are proud to enable you to gain an idea of what we are about here at St. Benedict’s.   

Situated in the beautiful rural location of Ampleforth, we are surrounded by the rich Benedictine history of the area.   With Ampleforth Abbey to one side, and Stanbrook Abbey overlooking us from Wass bank, we strive to emulate the values of the Benedictine Catholic tradition within our school community.

We recognise each individual as unique, created in the image and likeness of Christ, and endeavor to conduct our daily lives based on the values of the Gospel.  Our faith is an integral part of school life, and extends to include the greatest respect for those of other faiths, and their beliefs.   

In addition to our Catholic values, we are passionate about high quality teaching and learning.   We therefore strive to provide the best possible education for each and every child, enabling them to fulfil their true potential, through a broad and balanced curriculum.   

We are very proud of the fact that there is a genuine family feel to our school, and extend an invitation to you to come and see for yourself. In true Benedictine style, you will be assured of a very warm welcome.

Emma Barrs
Head of School
