Cavendish Education is a unique schools group. We challenge, with humility, the common perception of specialist education. Our co-educational independent day and boarding schools provide an all-round education for students aged between five and twenty one years old.

Our schools offer a warm and friendly mainstream-style environment with outstanding specialist support for students with dyslexia, dyspraxia, high functioning autism, Asperger’s Syndrome and associated communication and language needs. We believe that such learning differences need not be a barrier to success.

Each School has its own distinctive character, atmosphere and facilities, but they all provide a well-rounded, differentiated and skilfully-supported academic curriculum. Sport, technology, the arts, outdoor education and life skills all feature highly in our enrichment activities.

Through our distinctive approach we encourage and develop our students to be the very best they can be – giving them the confidence to be themselves and drawing out their incredible abilities. Our students are happy, they experience success and each finds their individual opportunity to shine.


The beginning of the Cavendish Education story is simple. Our Founder, Aatif Hassan, wanted to do something he loves and he loves to develop young people.


Growing up with dyslexia himself, Aatif wanted to give others the chance for success against the odds and in the face of obstacles. He believes that our pupils are neurologically diverse and able; 'different' in how they think and learn, not impaired. 


"Our pupils go on to do some amazing things in all walks of life. They show discipline, concentration and commitment"  Aatif Hassan, Founder
