We are very proud of the relationship we enjoy with our parish’s Church of England primary school.
Kentish Town Church of England Primary School was founded two hundred years ago to offer Christian education to all the children of our parish. It continues in that task to this day.
The outstanding education our children receive there takes place in a supportive and loving Christian environment in which all are cherished and valued. We hope that ethos equips our children with the skills, experience, and spiritual maturity they will need in life.
Fr Peter goes into school each week to lead worship, teach RE, and celebrate school Masses, and the school regularly comes up to St Benet’s for services on major feast days.
Because the school was founded by the Church of England to offer Christian education to the children of our parish, it is possible to gain a place at Kentish Town CE Primary School through attendance at St Benet’s on a Sunday morning. A child has to live within half a mile of the school, and must have attended the Sunday Morning 11am Sung Mass at St Benet’s Church with at least one parent twice a month for two years at the time of application in order to be eligible for admission on these grounds. Evidence has to be shown for this through the signing on Sunday mornings of an attendance register found at the back of church. Full details of the school’s admissions criteria are to be found here.
