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 25% of all A Level grades have been at A* and 60% at A*/A, while at GCSE 75% 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 82% taking up places at Russell Group/Sunday Times Top 12 institutions in 2021, and 94 places at Oxbridge and 89 places to Medical Schools achieved in the past decade. The graphic below illustrates how our examination results have enabled our pupils to move on to the next stage of their education.
