St Benedict’s Catholic High School is an 11-18 school, with a current roll of 961 students and a well-established Sixth Form (the West Cumbria Sixth Form), incorporating post-16 students from St Benedict’s School, St Joseph’s School in Workington, and also schools in the surrounding area. At present around 150+ students study in the Sixth Form. The school’s last Ofsted inspection took place in September 2014 and was judged to be ‘good’ with outstanding features. The school serves a wide catchment area in West Cumbria. It is a true comprehensive school with students of all abilities and diverse backgrounds. The school is open to all, is inclusive, recognises its faith mission and welcomes students who are not Catholic. Funding has recently been secured to develop a learning campus for the students of St Benedict’s and Mayfield Special School. It is anticipated that the new campus will open in late 2018 or early 2019.
