Awards & Quality Marks

We are all delighted to share the news that we have been awarded the Achievement for All Quality Mark Award.  This national accolade for quality has been awarded to us in recognition of the work we do improving the well-being, resilience and self esteem of our students who are vulnerable to underachievement.  The Quality Mark Award recognises the impressive work being done by the school to improve progress in reading, writing and maths for all students.

Garath Jackson, Regional Lead at Achievement for All, said: 

“We are thrilled to present The Cavendish High Academy with this much deserved award. They have shown a high quality of leadership and teamwork, and most importantly, the target groups have made more than expected progress and are closing the gap with their peers. Our programmes are designed to be a whole school improvement tool and The Cavendish High Academy has shown a continued commitment and success in improving outcomes for their children.

“Achievement for All believes that every child can progress, and through our programmes we hope to enable every child to be the best that they can be regardless of background, challenge, or need. Huge congratulations to teachers, parents, carers and young people at The Cavendish High Academy for all their hard work.”


We are also thrilled to have been presented with a certificate for Cavendish to acknowledge us as an ASDAN Centre of Excellence.  This is in recognition of our outstanding practice in running ASDAN courses during 2015-2016.
