Canford Sports Academy

Canford runs a number of different sports courses each year.  Led by the school’s own sports coaches alongside visiting coaching staff and making use of the exceptional sporting facilities among 250 acres of grounds, Canford is the perfect setting for children to develop their sporting, teamwork and leadership skills.


Unfortunately, despite the announcement from the government yesterday, we have made the decision to cancel the courses with the exception of Golf and Tennis. We feel that we will not be able to provide the experience and standard of coaching that is expected at Canford within the current guidelines of the various sporting bodies. Whilst these guidelines may continue to change in the coming weeks, we will not be able to prepare and deliver the programme in time and feel it is right to provide ample notice of cancellation. 

For children booked on Rowing, Netball, Hockey, Rugby, Multi-sports and Athletics we regret that these will be cancelled and all payments have been refunded automatically. The Golf and Tennis courses are able to run due to the nature of the sport and within the current guidelines but spaces here have been limited and are full for this summer, however please email if you would like to be added to the waiting list.  

We share your disappointment and hope to see all the sports courses resume next Easter and Summer here at Canford.
