About Cavendish Education

Cavendish Education is a unique Schools group. We educate and inspire exceptional young people and aim to ignite the spark of genius that is inherent in every child. It is our responsibility as educators to identify, celebrate and support each student and to deliver outstanding outcomes.


Our small group of day and boarding schools provide an all-round mainstream-style education with a particular focus on small class sizes, a broad curriculum and support for additional learning needs.

There is a deep commitment to the idea that Schools within the Cavendish Education group can provide an education to fit the individual.
