From our Head

Whilst we already knew that our school had many strengths, it is wonderful to have it confirmed by Ofsted and we can all be rightly proud to have gained such recognition.

The inspectors were incredibly impressed and noted “pupils behave very well in the classroom and around the school.

This creates a calm and welcoming atmosphere in which pupils thrive”.

I know that pupils and parents appreciate just how hard the staff work to provide not only superb teaching, but also the wonderful opportunities for all pupils to develop at Cavendish.
