Wimborne is named after Lord Wimborne, from whom Canford was bought in 1923 when it became a school. Originally housed in the main building, it moved to its current location in 1996 when it became the third day house.   Wimborne occupies the ground floor of the ‘Monteacute/Wimborne’ building near the Manor House and is conveniently located close to the Music School, Theatre, Sports Centre and Tuck Shop.
