De Lacy

de Lacy is the school’s newest house, founded in 2001. It is named after Alice de Lacy, the Countess of Salisbury who owned Canford in the early years of the fourteenth century. The house emblem is derived from the de Lacy lion. The house is adjacent to Marriotts near the golf course and sports centre, has warm and welcoming social spaces and a mix of cosy rooms that encourage integration among all the girls across the year groups.

House staff and tutors are all contactable via telephone or email. They are most readily available in the evenings as they also have teaching and co-curricular commitments.  Formal face-to-face meetings can always be arranged to discuss your daughter should the need arise.

Sascha joined Canford in 2012 to teach Geography and Politics. She speaks several languages and using her international experience has been a key participant in the school Global Forum programme. Sascha runs a number of afternoon activities and coaches hockey and rowing.  She enjoys travel and takes many field trips, both locally and abroad. Sascha is married to Ken and they have a young son and daughter.
