School Description

Cavendish School opened in 2000 in the London Borough of Southwark as a coeducational school for pupils aged 11 to 16 who have behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. Many pupils have additional and complex needs, including attention deficit hyperactivity and autistic spectrum disorders. The school aims to provide a safe and secure environment in which all pupils can have a fresh start and achieve success both academically and in their personal development. The school is registered to take up to 48 students and there are 32 currently on roll, almost all of whom are boys. Almost all have an education, health and care plan. The Inspection report: Cavendish School, 1–3 May 2018 Page 8 of 11 school takes pupils from several London boroughs. Pupils come from a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds and a few speak English as an additional language. Many pupils have been out of full-time education for some time prior to joining the school. All have had significant disruption to their education. The school makes use of the expertise of some alternative providers such as local colleges and Millwall FC Community Trust. The previous inspection of the school was in December 2013.
