Hello, I am Catherine Young and I am honoured to be the Headteacher of this vibrant and outstanding school. St Benet's is a very special school - special because of our staff, our families, our parish, our community and of course, our wonderful children! Our school is a small Catholic primary school which serves the parish of St. Joseph’s, Birtley in the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle. We are one of 48 schools in the Bishop Wilkinson Catholic Education Trust. We see it as our mission to spread the Gospel through our aspirations and care for the children in our school. Further to this, we believe that we have a mission to our families and the wider
