Welcome to Benfield School

Benfield School is a fully inclusive 11-18 school in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne's East End.  In our most recent Ofsted inspection we were rated as Good with Outstanding features.  The school was commended for the "thirst for knowledge and understanding and a love of learning" of the students.  It was also noted that we are an ambitious school and that we encourage all of our students to be the best that they can be.

"The quality of teaching is good. Teachers are enthusiastic and have high expectations of the students. Students rise well to challenges and as a result achieve well." - (Ofsted 2015)

Benfield has an incredible team of excellent teachers and support staff who genuinely care for the students and a fantastic group of young people who have a great love for the school and who take great pride in what they do here.
