Ripplevale School is part of the Cavendish Education Group.

​Cavendish Education is a family of day and boarding schools focused exclusively on enabling children and young people with unique learning profiles (including dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism and social communication needs) to be the very best they can be. 


The schools in the Cavendish Group focus on an individual’s strengths, talents and interests. Each school has its own distinctive character, atmosphere and facilities, and they all provide a well-rounded, differentiated and skilfully-supported academic curriculum. Sport, the arts, outdoor education and life skills feature highly in enrichment activities.


Cavendish schools inspire children and young people to have:

the confidence to be themselves,

the competence to achieve,

the creativity to shine, and

the character to succeed.


Through our distinctive approach we deliver outstanding outcomes for our students.
