Head Teachers Welcome
Welcome to Corpus Christi Primary – a friendly and welcoming school in the heart of Bensham, Gateshead.

Our recent Diocesan Inspection Report (2020) described our school as a ‘joyful, prayerful community’ where children are ‘happy and confident.’

We are a diverse community, where we appreciate and celebrate each other’s differences.

Early Years at Corpus Christi


We are very proud of our newly refurbished Early Years Unit and believe we can offer your child a fantastic start to their education.

Attending our Nursery from 3 years old ensures a smooth transition into our Reception Class.

We can offer 15 or 30 hours and be flexible around parents’ needs.

Places currently available. Please contact our School Office by phone or email to arrange a visit.

We look forward to welcoming you into our school community.
