The Cavendish Learning Trust was formed in July 2016. In September 2016 we became 4 schools – 1 secondary, Netherthorpe and 3 primary; Barrow Hill , Poolsbrook and Whitecotes. All our schools have a common desire to help each other, challenge each other and work together to bring about continued improvement – local schools supporting local schools. Our ethos is to retain each school’s unique identity whilst introducing best practice systems and processes to support improvement. Our approach is founded on effective partnership working – joining our schools, children, parents and communities. New Nursery Now Open. Funded places available for 3 & 4 year olds.
