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.

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.


Cathy Byng joined Canford in 1995 as the school went fully co-educational, and set up the girls’ games programme.  She teaches Chemistry, runs a community service project and has coached top teams in hockey, netball and swimming. She is married to Rob and they have two sons.
