Virtual Open Day

Virtual Open Day

Many families joined our Virtual Open Day on Saturday 24th April 2021 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. These were both run using YouTube live stream. If you were unable to join our Open Day events on Saturday 24th 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 24th April, 1000-1100

16+ Open Day – Saturday 24th April, 1200-1300

Each event lasted around one hour and included a live welcome and presentation from Headmaster Ben Vessey explaining the school vision, mission and values, film insights into pupil life and a pupil guided tour of the campus. There were also perspectives from pupils reflecting on their Canford experience. A live Q&A session with pupils and staff closed each event.

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. 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 9th October 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
