By | St Benedict's Posts | No Comments

On 27 September, the Chaplaincy team, with Naomi and Mrs Boote-Powell, visited St Chad’s Cathedral in Birmingham for the Diocesan Chaplaincy commissioning Mass.

ChaplaincyWe joined schools from across the Archdiocese to reflect on our mission for the academic year.

Bishop Robert Byrne inspired us to be channels of God’s love for others in our school communities as he gave us a special blessing.

The Chaplaincy team is made up of Altar Servers, Eucharistic Ministers, and staff and students who take an interest in the Spiritual life at St Benedict’s.

Uplifting experience with RAF

By | St Benedict's Posts | No Comments


Students in Years 8 and 9 were blown away before half term when a Royal Air Force Education show came to St Benedict’s to demonstrate the scientific principles of flight.

Using drones, virtual reality goggles and real aircraft engines as audio and visual aids, the main trust of the road show was to engage students, especially girls, in STEM subjects, i.e. Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

It also provided a fascinating insight into life and opportunities in the RAF.

The English department joined the ride, challenging our Year 8 passengers to write a review of the spectacle during half term. Meanwhile, 9s have since applied some of the principles in their Science lessons.
