Class of 2018

Over the course of the past 60 years St Benedict’s College has produced some outstanding matric results. This year has been no different. The matric group of 2018 as well as our staff can be extremely pleased with the fruits of their labour. Our boys have produced superb results in the 2018 National Senior Certificate of the Independent Examinations Board. We, as a school, are delighted with the boys’ performance and are proud of their achievements. One hundred and twenty six boys sat the NSC examination. The summary of the results below demonstrate the calibre of teaching and learning that takes place at St Benedict’s College.
