Welcome to St Benedict's Roman Catholic Primary School



"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 to you find out all about our school.   


Our school motto is "WE GROW IN FAITH AND KNOWLEDGE".   The symbols on our badge represent our Catholic faith (cross), our learning  (book) and our rural location (tree).    

We are blessed with close links to the nearby Benedictine community at  Ampleforth Abbey.   Along with our gospel values, we try to live by the values  of the Benedictine monks, following the example of our patron, Saint Benedict.   Our school chaplain, Father Bede is a monk at the Abbey, along with Father Philip, who is one of our governors. 

We recognise each individual as unique, created in the image and likeness of Christ and our faith is an integral part of school life.

Our Catholic values permeate everything we do and 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, following the mission of the Catholic church.

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.    You will be assured of a very warm welcome.

Head of School
