Athena Sixth Form College
The Cavendish School
Opening in September 2021, The Cavendish School (TCS) will be a special school for children with an EHCP in years 3 to 13 with autism spectrum condition (ASC), serving families across Cambridgeshire.
At capacity, it will cater for 80 children for whom ASC is the primary need on the EHCP. The mission statement of TCS is “Enabling the self.” This underpins our whole approach to the school and to our curriculum in particular.
