Headteachers and students

We are ambitious and set ourselves challenging objectives. This is an exciting time for Cavendish as we are improving the quality of teaching and learning.   Our dedicated and hardworking staff team have a real commitment to ensuring that students have the opportunity to make progress and enjoy success.    The Ofsted inspection in May 2015 recognised the many strengths of the school and agreed that the new systems will support us on our journey to ‘Good’.

We set high expectations and, as a result, our students are smart, well behaved and respectful. They have many opportunities for enrichment, both in school and through a range of educational visits, to enhance the learning in the classroom.

The school’s main aim is to develop our students’ potential to the full and to help them grow into successful, caring and respectful young people. In order to achieve this, Cavendish provides a safe, supportive environment within which their academic, cultural and emotional needs are met. The school motto – “committed to achieving our personal best” – underlines the responsibility of all members of the Cavendish community. There is outstanding pastoral support so that our students are able to engage with the curriculum, make progress and enjoy what the school has to offer.

We hope that you find this website helpful and invite you to visit the school so you can see us in action. We look forward to meeting you.

Gary Lewis, Executive Headteacher and David Fisher, Head of School.
