Feeder School Links

Pupils join Canford from around 50 different schools each year, at 13+ mainly from Prep Schools but also some from the maintained sector.  At Sixth Form entry, we also have strong links with a wide variety of schools across the counties of southern England, London and the Channel Islands.  Pupils do also come to us from schools across the UK and some internationally.  We strive to build good relationships with staff, parents and pupils at all schools with which Canford has a connection.

Our purpose is twofold.  We are aware of just how crucial and often difficult it is for parents and pupils to make a decision about senior school education. In order to make an informed choice on whether Canford is the right place for you, it is important to ensure that schools are fully aware of what Canford offers, its ethos and its aims. We attend future schools exhibitions at many Prep Schools and senior staff including Heads are invited to Canford on a regular basis.

We also run sports tournaments, cultural activities and academic junior events throughout each school year based at Canford.  If you would like to find out more about these, please get in touch 

While by no means a complete list, pupils often join us from the following schools:
