Benson is a member of the Handsworth Consortium of Schools. The school is one of the oldest in the area and has been in Birmingham, since the 1800s. Currently there are 11 classes based in the main school building and a nursery located next to the school. The school is very fortunate to have a large playing field and three playgrounds. Within the school, they have a brand new ICT suite and each classroom has its own interactive whiteboard.
