There was great excitement in both London and Dorset on Monday evening, 9th September, as Canford took home the prestigious ‘Public School of the Year’ trophy at the annual Tatler Schools Awards
Bursaries Change Lives
Since joining Canford in 2015 I definitely feel that I have grown in confidence. I feel that there are far more opportunities available to me now. When I first started I thought that my future might be in sport but I am now interested in becoming a psychiatrist – something that I wouldn’t have considered a year ago.
I would never have achieved my ‘A’ Level grades without the support I received at Canford. I don’t think I would have gone to Uni if I hadn’t studied at Canford and certainly not the Uni that I’m at. Canford showed me that I can achieve more and it ‘raised my game’ considerably.

I cannot imagine what my life would be like now if I hadn’t attended Canford. It increased my self-confidence considerably. I would like to go on to do something useful in society and perhaps work for a not-for-profit organisation. It is so important that other children are given the opportunity that I received at Canford.

If I could sum up what Canford gave me, I would say that it gave me the confidence to aim high. Without it, I’m not sure I would have applied for Medicine at Oxbridge, never mind succeed in my application. I am extremely grateful for the scholarship and bursary that I received from Canford, and believe I wouldn’t be where I am today without it.
