Pupils and staff have returned to Canford for the new academic year to a brand new library and Assembly Hall complex.
Lacrosse is played by girls during the Christmas and Easter terms from the fifth form upwards. We run two teams and enter the National Schools competition every March.
We have about forty girls playing each term; some play both terms while those that play just one term play either netball or hockey in the other term. Many pupils see it as an opportunity to try a completely new sport that they can continue at university.
Matches are held against St Swithuns, Godolphin, Sherborne, Milton Abbey, Talbot Heath and Marlborough. We also have fixtures with the Bournemouth University teams and local clubs.
Exceptional players are nominated to play in the Super Counties tournament and at the Regional Academy.
