Welcome to The Cavendish School

The Cavendish School will be a special free school dedicated to children with autism. We will cater for 80 young people aged 7 to 19 (Year 3 to 13) in a newly constructed building on the site of Impington Village College, Cambridgeshire. We received approval for the school in April 2017 and are working towards an opening date of September 2021.
