About Cavendish Close Junior Academy

Cavendish Close Junior Academy is a large school in Chaddesden, a suburb of Derby.  The school is popular and currently draws its pupils from a very varied catchment area.  

Our ethos: to encourage children to develop to their full potential and succeed as individuals, and to reward them for their effort, achievement and good behaviour. We provide equality of opportunity and promote high standards in all aspects of school life.  

Our values: we have always promoted values which are included in what  are now described as 'British Values', i.e. democracy; the rule of law; individual liberty; mutual respect; and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.  

Our vision: we want our pupils to be Curious Confident Children.

Last year was a very exciting year for the school. We moved into our new building ready to start the Spring Term 2016. The school now looks fantastic with beautiful displays in classrooms and in the corridors.

The school occupies extensive grounds with a playing field, sports field and two playgrounds. We have a large hall which can accommodate the whole school for  collective worship and which is also used as a dining room, for physical activities, and to accommodate our many after-school clubs. We also have a studio, which can be used for dance/drama, an ICT suite and a nurture room.
