We are delighted for the 156 Canfordians who have in total received over 500 offers this year. 78% of these are to Russell Group/Sunday Times Top 12 institutions in the UK, with five pupils heading to the US.
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.
