Welcome to Benton Dene Special School

  Welcome to Benton Dene Special School

As the Headteacher of Benton Dene Special School, I’d like to extend to you all a warm welcome and to thank you for visiting our website.

I’d like to share with you why I feel that ours is a truly wonderful nurturing, inclusive and stimulating environment for all our children. I’d like you to see at first hand our passionate commitment to learning and our recognition of the uniqueness of each individual learner. Ours is a school where we strive to give our children the best possible educational experience and to unlock the potential that lies within all our children. We want the children and their families to be happy and to love coming to school. I’m incredibly proud of all the achievements of the 120 children who are currently on roll in our school and I’m incredibly proud of the staff who work tirelessly to ensure that all children have the opportunity to be the very best that they can be.

I hope that you enjoy looking at this website and that the information proves useful. Visits to school are warmly welcomed. If you would like to know more, please do get in touch.
