Benfield School is a fully inclusive 11-18 school in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne's East End. We are a "Good" school (Ofsted 2010), with high aspirations for all of our pupils. As a Gifted & Talented Lead school we encourage all of our pupils to be the best that they can be.
Benfield has an incredible team of excellent teachers and support staff who genuinely care for the children at the school and a fantastic group of pupils who have a great love for the school and who take great pride in what they do here.
As a school we are small enough to ensure that we get to know every single child really well and we make a point of finding out and nurturing their individual talents and interests. It is a matter of great pride to us that no pupil slips by unnoticed and that each student is provided with a personalised curriculum that best suits their needs.
"I couldn't have been happier with the school and the staff. The teachers were wonderful at supporting my son and they always believed in him. I think that's why he achieved so much more than we thought he would. I can't thank everyone at Benfield enough" - Parent of Year 11 student
