General Information

The Cavendish School is a small, inclusive independent primary for girls aged 3 to 11 years. Non-selective at entry, we pride ourselves on our high level of pastoral care which we combine with high-quality teaching and a broad, balanced curriculum enriched with arts, languages and sport to ensure that the needs of each individual child are met. Pupils go on to a range of excellent senior schools, often with scholarships. Originally a Catholic foundation, we now welcome pupils of all faiths and none.


We have spacious, airy classrooms, dedicated rooms for science, music and art; a 200 seater multi-use hall, a gymnasium, library and kiln. Our outside space includes netball and five-a-side courts, quiet corners and a place to park scooters and bikes. We have choirs for all ages, an orchestra and a band, individual lessons for instruments and singing. Optional breakfast and after school clubs as diverse as chess, circus skills and cooking, as well as after school care can extend the school day from 7.45 to 6pm.
