Welcome to St. Benedict's Catholic College
St Benedict’s Catholic College is an 11-16 voluntary-aided mixed comprehensive college serving Catholic and other Christian families in North East Essex. At present there are 840 students on roll. Our college has very strong traditions, which are based on Gospel values; every member of our college community is treated as a unique individual created in the image of God. We are a welcoming community reflecting the importance of the partnership between college, home and parish in the education of the young people who attend the college.
Our aim as a college is to create a Christian community where each individual can develop his or her relationship with God, while also ensuring that each child is given the education necessary to allow them to move on appropriately. We try to ensure that all young people in our care have a love of learning, developing their abilities and gifts in such a manner that they are inspired, encouraged and empowered to fulfil their potential. Each young person will be at a different stage of development and therefore the emphasis is always on the needs of the individual.
