At Cavendish School we encourage and embrace creative opportunities within our curriculum. The school holds Artsmark status for its work in art, dance, drama and music. We believe that the arts provide an opportunity for self expression and a means to respond to awe and wonder in the world around us.

In 2014 we became an accredited centre for the Arts Award. The Arts Award scheme enables young people to develop as artists through a range of media and work towards a national qualification. Skills such as creativity, communication and teamwork are developed at Discover and Explore levels of the award. Some of our link secondary schools also hold this award, allowing children to continue onto more advanced programmes in their next setting.

Artsmark Day to Create July 6th 2022
As a whole school, we took part in Day to Create, which is a special Artsmark community day designed to support and celebrate children through art. The children created pieces of 2D art based on their design homework. During playtime the children had lots of collaborative art activities to enjoy.
