Future of St. Benedict's

Following the consultation period which took place over the last year, a final decision has now been confirmed to close St Benedict’s from 31 August 2017. This is undeniably a sad time for everyone involved in St Benedict’s but we are pleased that Catholic education will be secured in Ashington and the surrounding districts for the future with the expansion of St Aidan’s to become a primary from September 2017 on the St Benedict’s site. The letter from the Office of the School’s Adjudicator is available below.
