Welcome to Kelvin Grove
We provide a rich and vibrant learning community in Bensham, Gateshead. We are a truly inclusive school and welcome our pupils from all over the world. In our most recent Ofsted inspection (September 2011), we were recognised as “a good school with outstanding features”.
A little about us
We are a larger-than-average primary school with over 300 pupils. We have a 65 place Nursery where pupils from 3+ are able to attend. Our curriculum is bespoke to the needs of our learners, taking a cross curricular, thematic approach with an emphasis on basic skills. Kelvin Grove offers a varied menu of extra-curricular activities, provided “in house” by our staff and enriched by a number of external coaches. A free breakfast club, sponsored by Greggs the Bakers enables pupils to attend school from 8.10 am. If you would like further information about our school or would like to arrange a visit, please contact the main office to arrange an appointment.
