    KS3 English Excellence Awards

    To celebrate the hard work of our pupils in English, the English Department has held individual assemblies for Year 7, 8 and 9.  The Excellence in English Awards  have taken place for the first term of this academic year and it was wonderful to read excellent creative and analytical pieces of writing by our own pupils across the years. Teachers put forward nominations for Excellence in English and Outstanding Progress. Certificates were also awarded for Outstanding Effort and Outstanding Homework. The work entered was of such high standard that it was very hard to judge! Well done to all pupils and thank you for all your hard work.

    Carol Service Great Success!

    On the evening of 12th December we gathered for the 11th Year with St Mary’s School and the Parish of St Mary’s Derby for our annual Family Carol Service. We were treated to 2 carols from the Filipino Choir, St Mary’s Adult Choir, Saint Benedict Senior Choir and St Mary’s School Choir. The carols were accompanied by the Saint Benedict Academy Brass Band. Over 300 people attended the delightful service which was followed by Mulled wine and mince pies in the parish Centre.

    GCSE Pod

    The school has currently subscribed to a service called GCSEPod which is completely free to your son or daughter and which we believe will be of great benefit to them during the coming year for revision for the exams or for more general support during the school year.
    GCSEPod has over 3,500 teacher-written, audio-visual podcasts produced specifically for mobile devices and containing all the right facts, quotes, keywords, dates and annotated diagrams that learners need for GCSE success.  The GCSEPod website can be viewed on mobiles, tablets and PCs and the podcasts can be downloaded for offline viewing.  The podcasts are also mapped to the curriculum and are designed to support students in the classroom, with their homework and during exam time.  Click here to read more
