Canford Wish List

Donations and contributions which enhance education and life at Canford are tremendously valuable to our pupils and staff.

Canford prides itself on providing a rounded education for all pupils involving as many varying opportunities as possible. There are certain items or projects that can enhance this education further and make an immense difference.

Many alumni, parents and friends dramatically enhance this educational experience by creating opportunities we would not otherwise be able to provide and we are willing to support donors who wish to play their part in this at Canford.

The Canford Wish List offers some suggestions from our Heads of Departments. If you would like to play a part in enhancing education at Canford, please contact the Development Office.
