Welcome to The Cavendish, a small, inclusive independent school for girls aged 3-11 and boys aged 3-7. Non-selective at entry, we pride ourselves on our high level of pastoral care which we combine with high-quality teaching and a broad, balanced curriculum enriched with arts, languages and sport to ensure that the needs of each individual child are met. Pupils go on to a range of excellent senior schools, often with scholarships. Originally a Catholic foundation, we now welcome pupils of all faiths and none.
This is an exciting time to be at The Cavendish. The hard work of our staff was recently recognised in our 2016 Independent Schools Inspection when we were judged to be ‘excellent’, the highest grade achievable, in every category. We’ve just expanded into a new building, which has provided five more classrooms and a 200-seater multi-use auditorium. I urge any parent seeking a high-quality education for their child to pay us a visit to witness our wonderful school first-hand.
