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.

Post 16 education is the next step in the journey towards your future. Our Sixth Form team will work with you to enable you to excel and achieve your academic potential. We have had sustained success with our results and in joining our Sixth Form you will benefit from the immense support and academic expertise from a team of specialist subject teachers and tutors. As well as focusing on academic excellence, central to our ethos is finding ways to serve the community around us; we pride ourselves on the fact that our students take a key role in the wider school community 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 and tutor team whose specialist skills will assist you with high quality information and guidance which is reflected in our high retention rates, university offers and success in higher level apprenticeship applications.

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.
