What makes us different?
We believe that we are different, and that difference is good. Our students academically achieve very highly and work hard and I am proud of the Sixth Form.
Mr J Richmond, Head of Sixth Form
Our aim at St Benedict's Sixth Form is to support all our students to achieve their potential and take their place in society. This is both an academic and personal aspiration. We believe in the importance of developing each student’s sense of purpose and self-belief. Achieving exam results that will open doors to the future is important, but this success comes from excellent support, good learning habits, being on the right courses, resilience and confidence.
As a Sixth Form we have a proven, established track record of supporting students, whether their aspiration is a work-based apprenticeship, Oxbridge, Medicine or anything in between. Our Sixth Form offer focuses on what we know from experience is important and what will open doors for students in the long term.
Our Sixth Form also offers the uniqueness of a Catholic education. All students participate in tutorial sessions, assemblies, Religious Education and spiritual development continues to be acknowledged as an essential part of their education.
In particular the gospel value of ‘service to others’ is both encouraged and expected from our Sixth Form students. They respond very willingly to the challenge. Our school would be the poorer without their example and leadership within the student body.
