    St Benedicts School Whitehaven

    With so much happening at St Benedict’s Catholic High School, it’s often hard to get out into the general domain just all the amazing and exciting things our students are getting up to.


    So with that in mind, the school has created its own official Facebook page, which can be viewed here:

    We are keen for all local companies and businesses to ‘like’ our page and naturally, if anything is of interest to you, we are actively encouraging sharing. And of course, we are always keen to mention those we are involved with as well.
