Canford is among the top co-educational boarding schools in the country. Excellence is achieved not only in external examinations but also in all aspects of school life.
Ranked among the top 5 co-educational boarding schools in the UK by The Daily Telegraph based on 2013 A level results, Canford leads the way in the region academically. Yet education is about more than simply exam results. Our aim is for pupils to leave as well-motivated and interesting people, keen to develop their talents fully and to contribute positively to society. This is achieved by the pursuit of both breadth and excellence in a context of mutual support. Academic work may be the ladder to universities and careers but it is equally a source of much pleasure and personal growth, regardless of ability. Creativity and self-discovery are fostered through the extensive range of co-curricular activities. As Headmaster Ben Vessey: "One cannot tell whether balls or greasepaint or water or bees will fire up the imagination but the opportunities and encouragement are there." Open Days in Spring and Autumn, Scholarships at 13+ and 16+, Means-tested bursaries worth up to 100% of fees.
