Canford School

Canford is ambitious for its pupils; exam results are a leader among co-ed boarding schools and pupils aim high in all that they do, provided with the academic, emotional and spiritual support they need to reach their potential. Nearly 40 scholarships are offered each year at 13+ and 16+ and over 95% of Upper Sixth leavers move on to university, largely to Russell Group institutions. Among the top 10 most beautiful schools in the UK (Daily Telegraph) it is an inspirational educational setting.
