The Cavendish School

Head's Welcome

A very warm welcome to The Cavendish School’s website.

Trying to decide which school is right for your daughter is no easy task. In my experience the best way to make this decision with confidence is to visit the school to meet the pupils, staff and parents who make up the community. No words can replace the feeling you get when you are in and amongst the girls, seeing them learn and interact with one another. This website however will enable you to get an impression of The Cavendish School.

Our school is a remarkable community of learning that fosters an atmosphere of warmth and support, full of fun, kindness and laughter. We encourage exploration and this builds confidence in each of our girls: they take risks, discover their interests and passions, and engage confidently with the world and with each other. We achieve this through exceptional pastoral care and outstanding teaching in small classes. We recognise and celebrate the individual, encouraging pride in what they can do, as well as ambition for what they can’t do just yet.

We have a dedicated and talented team of staff who provide a remarkable environment in which to learn. They encourage each girl to do her best, be creative, to meet challenges head on and develop the skills to cope with setbacks. We believe that school should be somewhere that your child feels happy, valued and safe; somewhere where each pupil is supported and challenged to aim high within the safety of our collaborative and close-knit community.

Situated in the heart of Camden, we are an independent, non-selective, school for girls aged 3 to 11. We achieve remarkably high academic results; at 11+ our pupils go on to a wide range of excellent senior schools, often with music or academic scholarships. State-of-the-art facilities and specialist teaching across a broad and rich curriculum provide incredible opportunities for every girl to succeed.

We invite any parent who is seeking an education in which the sheer delight in learning is infectious to pay us a visit and witness our distinctive school first-hand; we would love to show you around.
