Welcome to the Cavendish Alumni.
This is a group in its infancy, we are eager to track down as many past students as possible and look forward to seeing membership grow and events take place.

The Cavendish School is proud of its scientific and technical background and is developing new opportunities for students to excel in these areas.  To that end, we are keen to establish links with businesses in the area; to offer work experience opportunities, training and clubs within school. These pages of our website are mutually beneficial; providing information on how we can help each other, whether it be for work experience, training opportunities or support with fundraising.

To help us build up an alumni group and keep members informed about events and opportunites, please complete our registration form.

We would love to see your old photos of the school or events. Maybe you have a photo of your form or year group?  Please email any photos, with details of the occasion, date and people involved to or post them to the school, for the attention of Mrs Turton.
