Welcome image

Welcome to the St Benedict’s Catholic High School website.  St Benedict’s is a happy, thriving, over-subscribed school serving the Parishes of St Begh’s and St Benedict’s Whitehaven, St Joseph’ Frizington, St Mary’s Kells, St Mary’s Egremont and St Mary’s Cleator.  In January 2019, the school co-located with Mayfield Special School to Campus Whitehaven, a £33m investment in the local area.

I attended St Benedict’s Catholic High School as a pupil and chose to send my children here.  I am now extremely proud and honoured to be the Headteacher.  As a Catholic School, Christ is at the centre of everything we do.  Our values, including dignity, humility, diligence, truthfulness, stewardship, and forgiveness are rooted in our Catholic faith.
