“Meeting the wants
of the age”
Cornelia Connelly, founder

Founded in 1875 Welcome to
The Cavendish School Camden

We foster a lively atmosphere of warm support, full of fun and laughter; one that builds the confidence to take risks, explore interests and engage with the world and with each other. We achieve this by combining exceptional pastoral care, dedicated and talented staff teaching small classes, and modern facilities in Camden Town. And we really know and care deeply about each of the girls.

About us


The Cavendish School offers places to 3 to 11 year old girls, with applications considered in the order in which they are received. In keeping with the school’s family ethos, applications from siblings are given priority where possible.
