About The Cavendish School

Welcome to The Cavendish School

Our girls do brilliantly because they are encouraged.

We foster a lively atmosphere of warm support, full of fun and laughter; one that builds the confidence to take risks, explore interests and engage with the world and with each other. We achieve this by combining exceptional pastoral care, dedicated and talented staff teaching small classes, and state of the art facilities in Camden Town. And we really know and care deeply about each of the girls.

As a result, despite being non-selective, we attain remarkable academic successes and our pupils at 11+ transfer to excellent senior schools, often with scholarships
