Pupils and staff have returned to Canford for the new academic year to a brand new library and Assembly Hall complex.
Canford Open Day – Saturday 9th October 2021: Event Full
UPDATE: Regrettably due to huge demand for places, we have now closed bookings for this event in order to ensure we offer all visitors the best possible experience while keeping both visitors and our school community Covid-safe. Please contact our Admissions team if you would like to book a private visit to Canford. Booking will open for our next Open Day (Saturday 7th May 2022) on Monday 11th October 2021.
Our next Open Day will be held on Saturday 9th October, and we are delighted that we are going to be able to run this as an onsite event for prospective families.
Open Day is an opportunity to see the school on a working day, meet our staff and take a guided tour of the houses and department buildings. There will be presentations from the Headmaster, Ben Vessey about joining the school at 13+ as either a day or boarding pupil and a separate presentation for those interested in joining us for Sixth Form. The format of the day has been changed from our usual schedule in order to ensure that our event is Covid-safe for both those attending and our school community.
Since our last onsite Open Day in October 2019, there have been some exciting developments in our facilities which we look forward to showing to all our visitors on the day. This September we opened the doors to the new library and Assembly Hall complex, a fantastic new building offering a modern, spacious teaching and learning facility combined with the technology to take advantage of academic expertise across the globe. This new complex will be the central hub for Open Day arrival and presentations, and our Admissions team and key members of staff will be available in this area throughout the morning to chat to families. A new Outdoor Education Centre is also now open, and two new boys’ boarding houses are currently under construction.
