About Benenden School

Benenden School is an independent boarding school for girls in KentEngland. It is located in Hemsted Park at Benenden in the Kent countryside, between Cranbrook and Tenterden.

Today Benenden remains an all-boarding school for over 500 girls aged 11 to 18. The headmistress is Samantha Price (previously head of Godolphin SchoolSalisburyWiltshire), who took over from Claire Oulton in January 2014.

The school occupies a Victorian mansion, set in 240 acres of gardens and woodland in the Weald of Kent. Living, learning, sporting and leisure facilities are clustered around the original 19th-century mansion. There have been, and continue to be, many improvements to the site. There is a sports centre (known as “SPLASH”), a humanities building (“Leelands”), a design technology centre, study centre (Clarke Centre) and a theatre and drama teaching complex (completed summer 2007) at the cost of £2.3 million. The study centre consists of the Eugenia Leung Library and classrooms. A new science centre, one of the most advanced centres of scientific learning available in the independent sector, was opened by the Princess Royal on 10 October 2012. The school’s most recent enhancement has been the construction of an all-weather sports pitch and pavilion in September 2016.
