St Benedict's received a section 8 Ofsted inspection in April 2022

The report states that:

St Benedict’s Catholic School continues to be a good school.

It goes on to say that:

Pupils say that their school is a happy place where they feel safe and accepted. They know that their teachers look after them and provide them with the support they need.

Pupils demonstrate very positive attitudes to their work. It is important for them to be the best they can be. They are also respectful, kind and compassionate towards each other, their teachers and visitors to the school. Older students are mature and self-assured, and support younger pupils in and out of the classroom.

Pupils interact well with each other and with their teachers. They help each other in class. They listen carefully and appreciate others’ hard work. Instances of low-level disruption are very rare. Bullying hardly exists. Should it happen, it is dealt with swiftly.

Pupils flourish as a result of the school’s powerful caring ethos. Pupils are open minded and confident. They embrace diversity, respect difference and understand other world religions. Pupils say, ‘It is a school where it is okay to be different.’

Please see the full report (of which we are very proud!)

Our school is committed to our mission as a Catholic community and seeks to help all our young people achieve their potential both academically and personally.

St Benedict's is a mixed comprehensive secondary school and currently has c970 students aged 11-18.
