Chair of Academy Council
We are very lucky to have a strong and highly skilled Academy Council who very effectively hold leaders to account to ensure St Benedict's is the best that it can be. They ensure that leaders in the school ensure that St Benedict's has strong academic standards and ensuring that we have an exciting and effective broad balanced Catholic education.
Our governors are active in the life of the school. They undertake regular visits, monitor the impact of school developments and help drive the strategic direction of St Benedict's.
