Welcome to The Cavendish School

peter-marchantOn behalf of the students, staff and governors of the Cavendish School, I should like to give you a very warm welcome to our website and invite you to explore its content.
For those of you who are already part of the school, I hope it provides you with the information you require but if not, then please don’t hesitate to contact us. For those of you who don’t know us, I hope it gives you some insight into what we are about and what we think is important.

A successful school is built on the relationships that are built between staff, students and parents and I believe this is a real strength of the school. Hopefully the website will give you a feeling of who we are as a school. Our aim is to develop young people who will not only leave the school with an excellent set of academic results but will also demonstrate our values of respect, resilience and responsibility.

Kind Regards
Peter Marchant
