Open Days

Canford holds two Open Days each year, in the Spring and Autumn, and these are an ideal opportunity for either a first visit or for those looking to make a House choice once registered.  They are also an informal opportunity to meet the Headmaster and members of staff, and to tour the school and Houses with a pupil.

Book online in advance

It is not essential to book for our Open Day but it would be very helpful to us if you could do so and may save you time when you arrive on the day.

Book online for our next Open Day on Saturday 27th April 2019
