The Regulatory Compliance Inspection confirmed that all of the measures required for the safeguarding and protection of children are properly implemented at St Benedict’s School, and that the school complies fully with all of the regulations set by government for independent schools.
The Educational Quality Inspection confirms and celebrates the many strengths of the school. It also recognises and affirms the steps we have been taking to make St Benedict’s even better, such as increased academic rigour, emphasis on active learning and closer scrutiny of data on individual pupils’ academic ability.
The quality of the pupils’ personal development is excellent.
Pupils throughout the school aspire to achieve the highest possible academic standards. This is in response to an increased focus by the senior leadership to improve achievement across all areas of learning. Pupils are responding well to recent demands for greater academic rigour and to the introduction of thorough procedures to track and monitor their progress.
Pupils demonstrate strong moral and social development and enjoy working together for the good of the school, facilitated by a strong community and excellent pastoral care.
Pupils’ spiritual development is excellent and they are knowledgeable about the importance of faith to themselves and others.
Throughout the school, pupils achieve good and often excellent standards of co-curricular activities and pursuits which lead to some well-developed physical skills and excellent creative work.
Senior pupils gain success in regional and national competitions in sport, including team success in rugby, cricket, athletics and hockey and individual success in a wide variety of pursuits, including sailing, fencing and gymnastics.
Children’s progress in the EYFS is excellent from their starting points because progress is facilitated by thorough planning that focuses on their interests and aptitudes.
