Cavendish Education is a unique schools group. We challenge, with humility, the common perception of specialist education. Our six co-educational independent day and boarding schools (including college provision) provide an all-round education for students aged between five and twenty one years old.
Our schools offer a warm and friendly mainstream-style environment with outstanding specialist support for pupils with unique learning profiles including dyslexia, dyspraxia, high functioning autism, Asperger’s Syndrome and associated communication and language needs. We believe that such learning differences need not be a barrier to success.
One of our London schools is now seeking an inspirational Head Teacher to lead the school at this exciting phase of growth and development.
Abingdon House School is a day school for pupils aged between five and fourteen years old and is especially welcoming of pupils with dyslexia, dyspraxia, speech and language needs, and autistic spectrum conditions.
The school’s ethos is based on understanding each child’s individual needs; nurturing their academic and social development, developing and expanding their unique talents, and caring for each child’s well-being.
Abingdon House School is located at Broadley Terrace, NW1 6LG, just off Lisson Grove and within walking distance of Marylebone Station, Baker Street Station and Regents Park.
