Saint Benedict Catholic Voluntary Academy
Saint Benedict’s would like to say well done to all of our A Level students this year who did extremely well. Our pass rate was 98% and we saw a big increase in the number of students who achieved A* and a grades. Particular congratulations go to Joseph Smith who achieved three A* grades and a place at Oxford university and George Lee who achieved three A* grades and a place at Cambridge. We wish all of our students all the very best for the future.

As ‘The Holy Family’ partnership of schools, we have been working closely with our Primary partners taking a lead from their rich Catholic History and tradition and having just seen St.George’s celebrate 50 successful years we look forward to St.Mary’s celebrating 200 years of Catholic education in September. Working closely together as a group of schools it is our mission to continue and build on the work of Mercy Sisters in taking Catholic Education forward in Derby and the Belper area and to safeguard it for the future.
