Head of Sixth Form’s Welcome

St Benedict’s Catholic High School’s’ Sixth Form offers a comprehensive suite of post-16 qualifications that equips students of varying abilities with the skills required for successful progression to higher education, apprenticeships and the workplace.

We warmly welcome students of all faiths, not only from the Upper School of St. Benedict’s, but also from other secondary schools.

At the heart of the Sixth Form is the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme – a course that offers both the depth and breadth of curriculum that is being increasingly demanded by universities, professional associations and employers.

Running alongside the Diploma Programme, BTECs are offered to students pursuing a more vocational education. Students taking Health and Social Care BTECs are also able to study a range of IB subjects to complement their studies.

We take great pride in the education that we offer, the support provided and the guidance given to our students within a caring Catholic environment. In 2012, in our most recent inspection, Ofsted stated that ‘the Sixth Form is outstanding’.
