Cavendish Education makes key appointment

Mr Simon Coles has been appointed as the Group Managing Director for Cavendish Education.

He joins Cavendish Education at the beginning of June and brings with him over twenty years of strategic leadership experience within private sector Specialist Education & Children’s Services. Simon is passionate about providing the highest possible outcomes for young people.

In 1998 he developed one of the UK’s first dedicated residential schools for young people with Asperger’s Syndrome. In turn this led to a number of senior leadership roles across specialist provision within the Farleigh Education Group. In 2002 The Farleigh Education Group became part of Priory Group, where Simon led the growth and development of Priory’s SEN and Children’s Services portfolio across numerous strategic leadership roles.

He was appointed to the Priory Board as Chief Executive Officer in 2016 and we are delighted to now welcome him to Cavendish Education as our Group Managing Director.
