HPV Vaccinations

HPV vaccinations for Year 8 and 9 girls will take place on the 20th of May throughout the day.

We were overwhelmed by the standard of submissions by Year 8 for this year’s Scholar’s Project. Mrs Peden said: “The projects created by our pupils form part of our annual celebration of literature here at Saint Benedict through the Scholar’s Symposium. This year, pupils promoted their works in the library surrounded by their chosen texts. We are extremely proud of the hard work and effort they have put into these miniature creations and hope the event continues to foster their natural love of reading!”

Due to a major water leak in Derby City Centre we have no water supply to the school site. This means that we cannot use the toilets or prepare food in the canteen. We have taken the decision to close the school. We have contacted the bus company and a return service will be available. We have advised any students who cannot get home to stay here until they can be collected by their parents. We are sorry for any inconvenience but this is a necessary cause of action. 


We are currently experiencing a problem with incoming telephone calls. If you are having difficulty reporting a student’s absence please use the My Ed App. 11/04/19

A Year 9 student helped to raise almost £1,000 for homeless people by sleeping outside all night.

Evie Baker took part in the YMCA Derbyshire Sleep Easy along with her mum and mum’s work colleagues from Elliot Mather.

The group slept out all night at Derbyshire County Cricket Club’s County Ground.

Hundreds of people took part in the event which raised £40,000 last year, enabling YMCA Derbyshire to acquire and refurbish 12 new units of accommodation in Derby city centre, providing safe and supportive housing for 36 individuals each year.

Evie (pictured below) said it was tough but worth it.

She said: “My mum had told me about it and a few of my friends had done it before but a long time ago. I knew it was for a good cause and I thought sleeping outside was the least I could do. My mum and two of her work friends, from Elliot Mather, did it with me.

“I didn’t really know what to expect. I thought we would be sleeping on concrete and I didn’t realise that we would have to make our own shelter. We used some carpet that my mum had brought and some cardboard but our shelter kept collapsing.

“It was raining and the next day it snowed. I could barely walk the next day and it’s hard to think that there are people who live like that. It makes you realise how much it means to have a roof over your head. I thought we’d raise about £200 so I was really pleased when I found out that we’d raised £943.75.

“I would do it again, I’d just make sure that I take more layers next time.”
