The Good Schools Guide

Canford has a reputation for academic excellence and our external results at A Level, Pre-U and GCSE are consistently impressive.  On average in the past five years, over 30% of all A Level grades have been at A* and over 65% at A*/A, while at GCSE 78% of all examinations have been graded 9/7 (A*/B).  Such results have enabled our Upper Sixth leavers to move on to top universities on a wide variety of courses, with over 80% taking up places at Russell Group/Sunday Times Top 12 institutions in 2022, and 52 places at Oxbridge and 47 places to Medical Schools achieved in the past 5 years.  The graphic below illustrates how our examination results have enabled our pupils to move on to the next stage of their education.
