St Benet’s Hall (or “Benet’s”) is a beautiful six-storey Georgian Grade II listed building right in the centre of Oxford. Despite its central location, the college has a quiet and peaceful atmosphere with a homely vibe, and is a secure site offering the ideal location for our younger students.
Founded in 1897 Benet’s was originally a place for the monks of Ampleforth Abbey and other monasteries to live while they studied for Oxford degrees. The college still closely resembles the traditional halls of study that were first set up, and is the tallest building on St Giles with views looking out over the entire city. St Benet’s has a cosy common room with TV and games, a beautiful garden and a library for quiet study.Students at St Benet’s are allowed off site in small groups during free time, though we register students throughout the day and use an experienced team of pastoral staff to ensure everyone have having fun in a safe and secure environment.The accommodation consists of twin rooms with shared bathrooms, available for our 13-15 year old students. St Benet’s has a cozy common room with TV and games, a beautiful garden and a library for quiet study.
All meals are provided on-site by the college’s professional chef, other than our picnic lunches. The college offers everything students need, however, we do make daily supervised trips into the centre of Oxford to explore the city and take a short walk over to the University Parks where students can let off some steam playing sports.
