Benenden School is an independent boarding school for girls in Kent, England. It is located in Hemsted Park at Benenden in the Kentish countryside, between Cranbrook and Tenterden.
The Good Schools Guide called the school "Everyone's idea of a traditional, up-market, girls' boarding school though not remotely hidebound by tradition; cutting-edge and unconventional in multiple ways, in a stunning setting and underpinned with common sense."
Today Benenden remains an all-boarding school for over 500 girls aged 11 to 18. The headmistress is Samantha Price (previously head of Godolphin School, Salisbury, Wiltshire), who took over from Claire Oulton in January 2014.
