WELCOME TO CANFORD

Ralph Waldo Emerson, the 19th century American poet and writer, said, "Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path, and leave a trail."  These are sage words, but can be hard to live up to. It is all too easy to play safe and go with the flow. We have to reflect often in order to make a difference to our own lives, and to the lives of others.  I hope this website offers a flavour of the multi-dimensional nature of a Canford education but the only way to get a genuine feel is to visit.  I look forward to meeting you.
