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.
