Welcome to St Benedict's College
I am delighted to welcome you to St Benedict’s College website. I hope it will give you an insight in to the varied and vibrant life of our great school.
Our Mission Statement is at our core. It states that “St Benedict’s is a Catholic, all ability, inclusive school committed to delivering excellence for all. Together with home and community, we strive to enable our students to be happy, safe and successful”
We are committed to academic excellence. We provide a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum which meets the varied needs and aspirations of our students. Through our curriculum delivery we ensure that all our students are positively engaged in their learning and are empowered to reach their full potential.
As an 11 to 16 provider we ensure our students are provided with clear curriculum pathways to Post 16 study, training or employment.
We pride ourselves on the excellent Pastoral Care delivered in the College. Our students are at the centre of everything we do. We have high expectations and aspirations for all our students and we challenge, nurture and support our young people to learn and to achieve. We strive to develop our student’s self esteem, self belief and resilience through the development of positive and respectful relationships. Our dedicated, experienced and hardworking staff work tirelessly to remove any barriers to children’s personal development, learning and success.
St Benedict’s offers an extensive range of extra-curricular activities and enrichment opportunities. All of which aim to discover and nurture individual student’s talents and abilities. They provide students with opportunities to experience new things, build friendships and learn new skills.
Like all good schools our best advocates and exponents are our students. They will assure you that our College is a school where everyone is included and valued, where standards and expectations of all are high and where everyone is afforded opportunities to achieve and enjoy success.
St Benedict’s College is determined to grow in size and status. As we do so, we will continue to ensure that every student in our care is given the opportunity to pray and learn in a school where they are happy, safe and successful.
I hope you will be encouraged by what you already know about the College and by what you will learn from the website. It is currently a work in progress so if you can not locate the information you require on the site or have any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us at school.
