In a year where the proportion of students receiving top grades was the lowest seen since 2007, Canford pupils have once again bucked the trend with excellent results at both A Level and Pre-U.
Canford Wish List
Donations and contributions which enhance education and life at Canford are tremendously valuable to our pupils and staff.
Canford prides itself on providing a rounded education for all pupils involving as many varying opportunities as possible. There are certain items or projects that can enhance this education further and make an immense difference.
Many alumni, parents and friends dramatically enhance this educational experience by creating opportunities we would not otherwise be able to provide and we are willing to support donors who wish to play their part in this at Canford.
The Canford Wish List offers some suggestions from our Heads of Departments. If you would like to play a part in enhancing education at Canford, please contact the Development Office.
