Thank you so much for visiting our website. I would like to extend a very warm welcome to you all.
At St Benet’s in this academic year we will endeavour to build upon our very successful Ofsted, from October 2014 and our outstanding R.E. inspection of June 2015 and work tirelessly to continue to improve our school.
We have had a very productive start to our Autumn term. The children, families, staff and I have all experienced learning that is both exciting and engaging. This consists of a variety of activities including – Derwent Hill, Hit the Surf, archaeological digs at Hylton Castle, councillor visits, stay and play sessions in early years, Harvest preparations, Nissan visits, Anti-Bullying acting, visiting authors, sports’ days – to name just a few. All this is all since September! Plus we have many more interesting events to look forward to.
Our Year 6 children are proving to be an asset to the school and are fabulous role models as prefects. We have our newly elected, Heads and Deputies – Isabella Shields is our Head Girl, Alex Wilkinson is our Head Boy, Heather Robinson is our Deputy Head Girl and Oliver Thompson is our Deputy Head Boy. They have already demonstrated themselves to be worthy of their positions.
Please take a look at our extensive news items, editions of the St Benet’s Bugle, our blogs, curriculum grids, past and present newsletters and many more interesting bits and pieces.
