Sixth Form

“Your Future Begins Here”

St Benedict’s Catholic High School incorporates the West Cumbria Catholic Sixth Form Centre, commonly referred to as “Sixth Form @ St Benedict’s” – a joint centre which includes post-16 students from St Benedict’s and also from St Joseph’s Catholic High School in Workington. 

The Sixth Form also welcomes students who are not currently in Catholic Secondary Education.

A warm welcome from Mrs Kar

“Post 16 education is the next step in the journey towards a student’s future. Our sixth form team works with every student in order to ensure that they excel and achieve their academic potential.

We have had excellent success with our results and our students benefit from the immense support and academic expertise they are given from their subject teachers. As well as focusing on    academic excellence a key part of our ethos is  also serving  the community around us.  We pride ourselves in the fact that our students take a key role in the whole school life and benefit from opportunities such as working with lower school students, organising charity events as well as fundraising for our local community.

We are renowned for having an outstanding pastoral system. Our sixth form has a dedicated student support officer whose specific skills will assist students with high quality information and guidance which is reflected in our high retention rates and university offers.

I look forward to welcoming you to our sixth form and helping you take the next steps towards achieving your future goals and your true potential

Mrs Kar, Director Of Learning for Sixth Form
