St Benedict’s Catholic High School is an 11-19 school, with a current roll of 1036 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 130 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 inclusive, recognises its faith mission, but welcomes all. 

A new Campus-style facility incorporating the rebuild of St Benedict’s and the re-location of Mayfield Special School is nearing completion. This £33m investment is expected to be available to students and the wider community from September 2018.
