Latest Matric Results

Results from the Class of 2021

St Benedict’s College is proud to release our Matric results for 2021.

Our boys have risen above the multiple crises of the last two years and have achieved fantastic results in the 2021 IEB examinations. Our staff also need to be commended on the outstanding role that they have played in ensuring that our boys were adept in their preparations ahead of the exams.

While we highlight some of the top achievers, many of our boys have attained results in excess of their own expectations. Across the past five years our boys have been encouraged to set achievable goals and to take responsibility for their own personal learning in order to realise these academic goals. St Benedict’s College has a proud academic history and has produced some outstanding matric results year after year. The 2021 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, as a school, are pleased with the boys’ performance and congratulate them on their fine achievements.

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