St Benedict’s Catholic school is regularly one of the top performing schools in Suffolk. This year we are pleased to announce a figure of 74% for grades 4 or more in English and Maths and a progress 8 score of 0.49, which have just been published in the recent government school league tables. These figures position us as the top performing school in Bury St Edmunds and the third highest school in Suffolk. The Progress 8 figure essentially means that students at this school make about half a grade more progress in all subjects compared to the progress achieved in an average school. St Benedict’s is the only school in Bury St Edmunds that has a Progress 8 score which is deemed by the school league tables as above average. It means quite simply that pupils of all abilities do better here than they would at another school.
Our results at A level are also impressive. This year our students achieved an A-C success rate of 82% of entries at grades A-C rate and an average grade per entry of C+.
These results reflect the hard work and determination of all those in our community – staff, pupils and parents. At St Benedict’s we all work together in a caring and supportive environment that brings out the best in pupils. Excellent teaching, high quality guidance and effective advice are just some of the ingredients that makes St Benedict’s the successful school that we are rightly proud of. Please feel free to look at the detailed breakdown given below of this year’s and previous years’ results.
