Cavendish Close Junior School is a large school in Chaddesden, a suburb of Derby. The school is popular and currently draws its pupils from a very varied catchment area. The school occupies extensive grounds with a playing field, sports field and two playgrounds. The original building was opened in 1933, with additional classrooms being built on in the 1970’s. In May 2012, the school was informed that it was to be rebuilt as part of the Priority School Building Programme. The building work started in March 2015 and we moved into the new building ready for the start of the Spring Term 2016.
We have a large hall which can accommodate the whole school for collective worship and which is also used for physical activities, as a dining room and to accommodate our many after school clubs. We also have a studio, which can be used for dance/drama, an ICT suite and a nurture room.
