    There's no such form, I'm afraid.

    Just to your knowledge, I'm not a teacher.

    Beneath is an adverb meaning below. It does not have a superlative form. You can use a synonym instead :

    to a lower place, to the lowerest place [ on Earth], etc. It depends on the context you want to use it in.

    Beneath means inferior or less important, as in position, rank, or power, as well.
    e.g.

    A captain is beneath a major.
    beneath - Definitions from Dictionary.com

    His rank is the least important of all ranks...
    What is the context?
