Open Days

COVID-19: We are very much hoping that our next Open Day on Saturday 24th April 2021 will be possible to hold on the school campus.  Please do book for our event below and we will be in touch nearer the time with more information. 

October 2020 Open Day: Our recent Virtual Open Day held on Saturday 10th October included separate events for 13+ and 16+ admissions. The event gave a general overview of life at Canford, including a live welcome and introduction from our Headmaster Ben Vessey, a presentation on the school's vision and ethos, information about our Admissions process and a pupil guided tour of the school. Following this a 30 minute live Q&A session with pupils and staff took place. These presentations can be viewed via completing a short form on our Virtual Visits page, once you have submitted the form you will be taken directly to the presentation:

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.
