Another record exam result year for St Benedict’s!


Students, staff and parents have good reason to celebrate the recent school performance league tables.


At A Level, St Benedict’s has again been placed in the top 100 schools nationally, state and private, at number 56. It appears that we are also the top state comprehensive school in the country this year. This matches the 'Outstanding' Ofsted rating for our Sixth Form and the ALPS (A Level Performance System) Grade 1 that we were awarded this year. We are again the highest placed school in the whole of Suffolk, and the only one with a points score per student above 1000- ours is 1062.


Our GCSE results are again at the standard to put us among the best-performing schools in Suffolk- top in West Suffolk for GCSE points score and English Baccalaureate, and second, by 1%, on 5 A*-C passes including English and Maths. (Our score this year is 69%).This, as we have said before, probably makes us the best performing Requires Improvement school in Suffolk, if not in England! We hope that our parents, students and friends are reassured by these fantastic figures, and celebrate with us an outstanding set of results, now published and confirmed by the DfE.


Many congratulations to the classes of 2014, at GCSE and A Level, their teachers, and their parents, for an achievement to be rightly proud of.
