Benfield School is a fully inclusive 11-18 school in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne's East End. In our most recent inspection the school was commended for the "exemplary behaviour" of the pupils . It was also noted we are an ambitious school and that 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 think it's great here. It was so easy to settle in, the lessons are really interesting and I've made loads of new friends" - Year 7 student
"I have loved my time here. I am so sad to be leaving but Benfield has prepared me really well for the move to university and I'm looking forward to it. I will miss everyone and I'm really grateful for the help I got in completing my A levels" - Year 13 pupil (leaving to study Biomedical Sciences at Edinburgh University)
