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.  The usual format is below.

COVID-19: At present we are very much hoping we can run our Open Day on Saturday 10th October in person, rather than as a virtual event.  However, with much uncertainty still regarding Government direction on large group gatherings, what the situation in October will be remains unclear.  We will be running Open Day on this date in some form, and if there are any changes to the schedule they will be posted on this page and all booked families will be contacted.

Virtual Visits to Canford

Canford Virtual Tour

 

Our Virtual Visits page is now LIVE.

While we know it will not replace the experience of actually visiting the school, we hope that this page will offer you a sense of Canford life and the chance to explore the school through film, images and links to key areas of our website.
