Marriotts is named after Canford’s fifth headmaster, Martin Marriott. It lies in the north east of the grounds, near the sports centre and overlooking the golf course. Purpose-built like all the girls’ boarding houses, it has bright, cheerful rooms for socialising and individual washing facilities in each bed-study.
