Pupils and staff have returned to Canford for the new academic year to a brand new library and Assembly Hall complex.
Sixth Form Admissions
Around 30 pupils each year join Canford in the Sixth Form from a wide range of backgrounds, both educationally and geographically. After visiting the school, the submission of a completed registration form is required by early October for entry the following September.
Applicants are invited to the school early in November for tests, interview and a tour of the school. Applicants from overseas may take these tests at their school. Places are offered subject to achieving a minimum of 42 points on the best seven GCSEs. Normally we would expect at least A grades in subjects to be studied at A level and at least B grades in English and Mathematics.
