Sixth Form Excellence Confirmed
The Headteacher of St Benedict’s Catholic School has received further confirmation that his school is nationally recognised for its outstanding achievement. A letter from Oxford Analytics Centre for Innovation and Enterprise at Oxford University confirmed that St Benedict’s features in their list of the top 20 sixth forms in the country.
On checking the website, Hugh O’Neill found that St Benedict’s was second, third and fourth on 3 different lists.
He said: “This is a very exclusive list. St Benedict’s is the only school in Suffolk to appear on the list, and we are in very good company, with a number of other schools recognised for their outstanding achievement. “
The listing follows the announcement in June that St Benedict’s was one of 3 schools topping the league table for students going to Oxford or Cambridge, something the Schools Minister, David Laws, was pleased to mention in his speech launching the new measures. St Benedict’s expects to be similarly placed this year, following another outstanding set of exam results at A level in 2013.

GCSE Exam results 2013
The pass rate this year for students achieving 5 A*- C including English and Maths grades was 55%.
The average points score per candidate was 490- this is a school record, beating our previous best ever year of 2011 by 12 points.
There were some truly outstanding performances: All of the following 12 students achieved 13 GCSE passes, at least 11 of them at A* or A.
The record this year goes to Josh Bryan, who achieved 11 A* passes, and 2 A passes
Toby Alfred-Jones, Phoebe Allsop, Josh Bryan, Ellie Coleman, Darcie Cowap, Hannah Dance, Josh Grover, Toby Horkan, Elizabeth Jessop, Evie Marlow, Gabriela Monteiro, and Molly O’Donnell
“This is a year’s results of which there is much to be proud. Once again, there have been many outstanding individual performances. We have named 12 students who have achieved at least 11 A* and A grades in their 13 GCSE passes. Their results contribute to our best-ever points score per candidate. However, the headline figure of students passing with 5 A8-C grades including English and Maths is no higher than last year’s, despite huge efforts to improve , particularly in English. However, this is the examination world we now live in, where it is increasingly hard to achieve a grade C pass in key subjects, especially English, Maths and Science. The key thing is that our students have done extraordinarily well in a tough exam season, and should feel hugely proud of their achievements. Once again, that achievement has been a collective effort, of all their teachers, in this school and previous schools, of parents and carers, but above all, the hard work of the students themselves, who have be a wonderful group to have in the school.”
