Latest Matric Results

Results from the Class of 2022

The management and staff at St Benedict’s College are delighted with the Matric results for 2022.

Our boys have performed extremely well and are commended on their overall performance in the 2022 IEB examinations. We celebrate and give thanks for the achievements of each boy. The results are the fruit of individual effort and the teamwork of teachers, parents and peers.

While we highlight some of the top achievers, many of our boys have attained results in excess of their own expectations. We have encouraged the boys in our care to define and set their own personal benchmarks and to take responsibility for their own personal learning in order to realise these academic goals. Historically, St Benedict’s College has produced some outstanding matric results and this year is right up there with some of the best. The 2022 final results have been achieved through the boys’ own individual efforts, coupled with the unequivocal support from their parents and the determination of our phenomenal teachers. We salute the class of 2022 on their fine achievements.

– Mr Dave Jeffrey, College Head                                                        – Mr Andre Oosthuysen, Executive Head
