Curriculum Guides

"Leaders have created an engaging curriculum that meets the needs of all pupils, especially the most able. Pupils are interested in their studies and want to learn."
Ofsted, 2016

At St Benedict’s our curriculum is structured in order to inform and support the practice of the Catholic faith through shared Gospel values. These values ensure that young people achieve the full potential God has for them, irrespective of ability, background or personal circumstances.


"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” Matthew 7:24

Wisdom. Through our curriculum we seek to provide young people with the relevant knowledge, understanding and Cultural Capital to inspire their future learning and careers and which enables them to play an active part in society, whatever their background. Our curriculum enables young people to seek truth and wisdom in their own lives and look beyond the superficial and misleading.


"If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?” John 3:17

Compassion. Our curriculum provides opportunities for young people to learn about the society (both local and global) in which they live their lives and to connect with others with kindness. We ensure that our curriculum is broad and balanced to enable all young people to learn about the diversity of human achievement and endeavour and the importance of mutual respect and compassion for others.


"Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh" Luke 24:52

Resilience. Our curriculum encourages students to learn from their mistakes, make progress and see success as an ongoing process. Our curriculum helps students to approach their futures with hope and optimism and through personalised approaches to learning, see that their own future can be a bright one.
