We are an age 2-16 special school for 88 pupils with a range of learning difficulties and diverse needs. The school has specialist status for communication and interaction, which underpins all teaching and learning. Bennerley Fields is a vibrant, nurturing school community where everyone is welcomed, valued and respected.

With great support and hard work, we aspire to be the very best we can be.

On the 1st August 2018 we became an academy and joined the Esteem Multi-Academy Trust with a number of other special schools and pupil support centres.

Our school is made up of two buildings. Our Early Years Department is housed in a separate building and has its own outside space with suitable play equipment. The Early Years block houses our Year 1 and Year 2 pupils in Ladybirds and Dolphins classes. The extension that houses our Community Room was officially opened in 2011. As part of this building work, the school gained a Therapy/Meeting Room and a Sensory Room. Our Main School block has two classes in KS2, three classes in KS3 and two classes in KS4 with an additional two classes containing a mix of KS3 and KS4 pupils.

Around the main school building, we have extensive playing fields and open spaces with each Key Stage having its own playground. There is a large polytunnel in our school garden where the children can learn how to grow plants and vegetables.
Down near the canal, there is a more natural expanse of land which has two fenced ponds and a large wooden bridge spanning a marshy area. Our wonderful new Sensory Garden in our enclosed school courtyard was officially opened on 9th June 2014.

Our staff team consists of skilled, dedicated professionals, all working alongside families to meet the needs of our pupils. We have our own NHS Speech and Language Therapist on site plus access to our local community Speech and Language Therapist.

Together we achieve amazing things.
