I am delighted to welcome you all to Cavendish Close Junior Academy, which is a proud part of The Harmony Trust. We are very pleased with all of our achievements and the progress we continue to make, and are dedicated to doing our very best for all of our children and families.


We continue to make children’s educational experiences the best they can be through our engaging ACE curriculum, which is driven by the desire for all pupils to Aspire, Collaborate and Experience throughout every day. We have a skilled, friendly and committed staff team, who work hard to make our whole academy community a positive one and we always welcome ideas and feedback. It is not only our vision to provide children with the best possible education now; it is our aim to provide children with every opportunity to succeed in their future lives both socially and academically.


We are a kind and caring academy who pride ourselves in always making everyone feel welcome. When you visit us, you will clearly see our determination and commitment to make the Harmony Trust values ‘Believe, Achieve, Succeed’ a reality for every pupil.

Best wishes,


Mrs Michelle Tague Principal
