Partnership Working 

St Benedict’s High School enjoys very close working relationships with its associated primary schools which ensure that the pupils benefit from a smooth transition from primary to secondary.

As a result of firmly established consortium relationships within Renfrewshire, our students benefit from a wider choice of subjects at all levels and access to vocational courses at Reid Kerr College.

Partnership working with the Homelink Service, Educational Psychology Service and Health and Social Work is fundamental to meeting the additional support needs of some of our young people.
