Letter from Mrs Jackson:

Dear Parents and Carers

We are now in Holy Week, and it seems an appropriate time to reflect on everything that has happened over the last term. Christmas feels like a distant memory and time appears to have passed so quickly.

School continues to be a hive of activity. Whether it be the buzz of learning around the classrooms, our sporting success on the field, or the many and varied after school clubs we have, there appears to have been something for everyone this term. As always St Benedict’s has great sporting results, but in particular for me our performance at U Dance was a great highlight.

I am particularly proud that we have developed our music provision this academic year. Many of our students are learning to play musical instruments and the school band continues to grow.

I am continually impressed by the attitude of our students to their studies and their excellent behaviour around school. I was just this week looking at a list of the hundreds of students with zero behaviour points. At this time of year, many staff are writing references for our Year 11 and 13 students, secondary education is the gateway to their future, and I am delighted that so many embrace all that we have to offer here at St Benedict’s.

We move now into the summer term and will begin end of year exams for all students.  This will be a chance for our students to show us what they can do. It will of course bring sadness too as we say goodbye to Years 11 and 13. We will also have the excitement of welcoming the new cohort of Year 7.

Easter will be a time of rest and recuperation (and revision for our older students). I look forward to seeing everyone refreshed when we return in April.

Have a very Happy and Holy Easter.

Yours faithfully

Emma Jackson
