Policies, Inspections and Reviews
The children are very natural and grounded. Nice teenagers with few affectations. I think my children shall become friendly, kind, genuine adults.
We were thrilled and very proud to be selected from Music departments in independent schools across the UK as a finalist in the Performing Arts category at the 2021 Independent Schools of the Year Awards.
Finalist - Senior School of the Year 2020
Canford was thrilled to be crowned Public School of the Year at the 2019 Tatler Schools Guide awards, selected from top Public Schools from across the UK.
Finalist - TES Independent-State School Partnership and Whole School Community Initiative of the Year 2019
Boarding School of the Year and Highly Commended Co-educational School of the Year 2018 - Independent School Parent
It is such a privilege for a child to be educated at Canford. The school has managed to instil a sense of appreciating that privilege without the arrogance that can accompany a private education at some other top boarding schools.
