About Cavendish Education

Cavendish Education is a unique schools group. We challenge, with humility, the common perception of specialist education. Our five co-educational independent day and boarding schools provide an all-round education for students aged between five and nineteen years old.



Our schools offer a warm and friendly mainstream environment with outstanding specialist support for students with dyslexia, dyspraxia, high functioning autism, Asperger’s Syndrome and associated communication and language needs. We believe that such learning differences need not be a barrier to success.

Each School has its own distinctive character, atmosphere and facilities, but they all provide a well-rounded, differentiated and skilfully-supported academic curriculum. Sport, technology, the arts, outdoor education and life skills all feature highly in our enrichment activities.

Through our distinctive approach we encourage and develop our students to be the very best they can be – giving them the confidence to be themselves and drawing out their incredible abilities. Our students are happy, they experience success and each finds their individual opportunity to shine.
