Watch the Virtual Open Day recording
Virtual Open Day
Many families joined our Virtual Open Day on Saturday 10th October 2020 to find out more about our award winning education.
While we are unable to run our usual onsite Open Days at the moment due to Covid-19 restrictions, we offered two virtual opportunities to hear from pupils and staff and take a recorded pupil guided tour of the main campus. These were both run using YouTube live stream. If you were unable to join our Open Day events on Saturday 10th October you still have the opportunity to watch the recording of the 13+ and 16+ events, please visit Virtual Open Day.
There were two events to choose from:
13+ Open Day – Saturday 10th October, 1000-1100
This event was a general overview of life at Canford, including a live welcome and introduction from our Headmaster Ben Vessey, a presentation on the school’s vision and ethos, information about our Admissions process for 13+ entry and a pupil guided tour of the school. Following this there was a 30 minute live Q&A session with pupils and staff.
16+ Open Day – Saturday 10th October, 1200-1300
This event aimed to give a helpful introduction both to life at Canford in general and specifically about what our Sixth Form offers. It included a live welcome and introduction from our Headmaster, a presentation on the school’s vision and ethos, information about Admissions at 16+ and the pupil guided tour of the school. The Q&A session included a mix of Sixth Form staff and pupils.
While a virtual event will never be able to fully replace the experience of visiting Canford, we do hope that our online resources will be helpful until such time you can come to the campus in person. Our virtual visits hub page contains links to films and more information about a Canford education so please do take a look at this page which is updated regularly with latest news, social media updates and footage.
We are very much hoping that our next Open Day on Saturday 24th April 2021 will be possible to hold on the school campus. Please do book for our event and we will be in touch nearer the time with more information OPEN DAY BOOKING - 24 APRIL 2021
