Welcome to our school website and thank you so much for visiting us.
St. Benet Biscop Catholic High School is an expanding 11-18 mixed comprehensive school serving the communities of Northumberland. Located in south east Northumberland, our catchment area extends from Bedlington, where the school is situated, to Alnwick in the north of the county.
As a Catholic school St. Benet Biscop is a Christ centred community founded on the Gospel values including love, truth, justice and reconciliation. The curriculum and all decisions are guided by these values and all staff and pupils are expected to contribute to the Catholic ethos by relating to pupils and one another in ways that are consistent with them.
As defined in our mission statement "To seek wholeness, through faith quest and learning To become what God intends us to be" St. Benet Biscop exists to educate the whole person and to develop the full spiritual, academic and moral potential of all students.
Mr Con Todd
"St Benet Biscop is a good school with many outstanding features.
Students approach learning with highly positive attitudes.
They thoroughly enjoy learning, their behavior is outstanding and they are highly committed to succeed in all they do."
BEST EVER GCSE RESULTS !!!
Congratulations to our Year 11 students on recording the best ever GCSE results this year. Despite a drop nationally in the percentage of pupils attaining 5 A*-C grades including math's and English, 64% of our pupils achieved this important threshold. Furthermore, the percentage of A*-A grades exceeded the national average at 22%, another school record. It is particularly pleasing to see results improving across the school with eighteen out of twenty-four GCSE subjects offered showing significant improvements upon last year's results. These excellent results are a testament to the hard work and commitment of staff and pupils alike.
Well done everyone!
Multi-Academy Trust Consultation
Following the consultation last term with all stakeholders the governing body intends to seek permission from the Diocese to explore academy conversion further. Becoming an academy is a big step for our schools and a final decision on whether or not to convert will not be made until after a detailed analysis of the legal and financial implications have been fully explored.
