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.


Housemaster since September 2008, Henry joined Canford in 2003 after a career in finance and consulting. He was previously Head of Mathematics, coaches hockey and tennis and helps run the CCF, particularly enjoying adventure training. Henry is married to Pagan and they have three children, two currently at Canford.
