St Benedict's Catholic High School 

At St Benedict’s School we provide a safe and caring environment where each student can develop their self-esteem and grow into ‘educated’ young people in the fullest sense of the word. We believe that through their experiences in our school community we help students to understand the moral, social and spiritual demands of the society in which they live. We help them to understand that in striving to be the best they can be, they will benefit not only themselves, but the future communities in which they may live. 

By placing the values of the Gospel, the Catholic faith and a Christian ethos at the heart of all our interactions with each other in our school community, we believe that we give an additional dimension to the education of our students; by embracing the development of skills, culture, positive attitudes to learning and good citizenship in the context of Christian faith, we reflect the view of the Catholic Church that the education of the whole person is paramount. 

We believe firmly in giving our students a voice in our school community. Teachers and other adults in our school encourage students to express their views in positive and constructive ways; we listen to and respect their opinions and act upon them, empowering students to take pride in being actively involved in their school community and in aspiring to excellence in all that they do.
