Award winning Music at Canford
Canford is delighted to announce that it has been shortlisted for an award in the Performing Arts category of the Independent School Parent magazine’s Independent School of the Year 2021 awards for the high quality of its Music provision.
Dr Helen Wright, Chair of Independent Schools of the Year 2021 said: “The aim of the awards has always been to highlight the excellence of the student experience in independent schools. On the evidence of the submissions, the independent school sector in Britain is demonstrating resilience and agility, while continuing to deliver a first-class educational experience to its pupils despite having to live with ever-changing levels of restrictions. It has been wonderful to learn about transformative and innovative projects and programmes that are underway from Aberdeen to Truro, and we have so enjoyed reading your stories. “
Director of Music, Christopher Sparkhall said:
“The pupils have worked incredibly hard this year to keep their music-making going, despite the numerous difficulties and problems. Shortlisting for this award is a wonderful affirmation of their enthusiasm and commitment at the end of a challenging year.”
Independent Schools of the Year finalists will be revealed on 7 September, and judges will then meet again to reach a decision on the winner of each category. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in October, which we hope can take the form of a physical event again this year.
