St Benedict’s is an 11-19 Catholic High School that serves a wide catchment area in West Cumbria. We are a true comprehensive with students of all abilities and diverse backgrounds.


Rated ‘Good with outstanding features’ by Ofsted,  we are a larger than average school, housed in modern accommodation with extensive grounds.


Our school is situated on the Cumbrian coast on the edge of the Lake District National Park and not as remote as you might imagine! It is an easy drive to work along some of the most scenic roads in the UK and living in Cumbria might be just the lifestyle change to suit you and your family. We have a superb NQT Induction Progamme and a dedicated subject mentor.


In January 2019 we will be opening a £33m new school, which has been individually designed (not an ‘off-the-shelf’ model!) and will have state of the art facilities.


We can also offer you:

  • Support and development in leadership and management skills
  • Comprehensive CPD
  • The opportunity to mentor students in a successful Teaching School Alliance
