Franklin is one of Canford’s three original houses.  Based in the main Manor House until 1987, it then moved to its current position in the south west of the grounds where it overlooks playing fields next to the Adby All Weather pitch. Franklin has been extensively refurbished over the years to provide expanded social and study areas.

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 son should the need arise.

Will joined Canford in 2011 as a Biology teacher, having studied Biological Sciences at Wadham College, Oxford. He was previously Academic Head of Lower School and is an experienced sports coach. He has a passion for conservation and enjoys travelling and watching musical theatre. Will is married to Laura, a fellow teacher of Biology at Canford, and they have a young family.
