The school has increased access to specialist provision for families whose children’s needs cannot be catered for within the current state provision in the county.

Attendees were joined by special guests, in person, Sam Holness and Dean Beadle, and virtually, Chris Packham and Holly Smales; all of whom shared their experiences with autism, their journey to success and the importance of the school’s mission “enabling the self”.

Stephanie Smith, Head of School, said: “We are thrilled to be celebrating another milestone for the school.

“In the last year, we have seen the impact of providing a safe, nurturing, and inclusive space for our students to access their learning; they are thriving academically, socially, and emotionally.

“We are looking forward to another exciting year ahead as we help our students achieve their academic and personal aspirations.”

About The Cavendish School

Opened in Autumn 2021, The Cavendish School is Cambridgeshire’s first state maintained special free school provision for young people with autism.

It is collaborating with the International Baccalaureate (IB) to develop and deliver the first IB programmes tailored to the needs of autistic students.

The Cavendish School provides the unique educational environment that young people with autism need to thrive and succeed when their needs cannot be met in a mainstream school.

The Cavendish vision is to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which students can enjoy learning, achieve their potential, and develop the key skills they need to thrive as independent, emotionally, and socially confident young adults.
