    Best A Level and AS Level Results Ever – Well done Year 12 and Year 13


    This year at Saint Benedict Catholic Voluntary Academy we have been celebrating increases across the board in this year’s A Level and AS Level results.

    We were most delighted with the increase in top grades with the number of students achieving A*-B increasing by more than double.

    There was also a 13% rise in the percentage of A*-C grades, from 49% last year to 62% this year.

    A total of 79 students took exams, including A2 and BTEC, and the average points score per student was up by 33 points from last year. Our overall pass rate also rose from 97% to 98%.

    We are immensely proud of all of our students and of what they have achieved and we wish them all the best for the future. Our thoughts and Prayers go with you.

    Britain’s Got Talent duo Bars and Melody perform at St Benedict Academy

    Click here to read the Derby Evening Telegraph’s article on the recent visit by Bars and Melody for the end of the school term.

    Kevin Gritton, deputy head teacher at St Benedict, said all the students enjoyed today’s performance.

    He said: “We were originally planning on having Bars and Melody perform in the theatre to about 200 students but they have all worked so hard this year we wanted to reward them on the last day of term and we opened it up to the whole school.

    “The guys were really impressed with our school and all of our students behaved brilliantly and enjoyed the performance. We would like to thank Bars and Melody for visiting us and delivering their anti-bullying message, which is something that we take very seriously in this school.”
