Canford School is an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 13 to 18 located in a beautiful 250-acre campus location near Wimborne in Dorset.
Headmaster Ben Vessey says: 'We want our pupils to encounter formative experiences through their education in the academic, co-curricular and pastoral aspects of their time here. These in turn will lead them to question, to make decisions and to act vigorously, both as individuals and through their engagement with others.'
'Such characteristics are crucial if our pupils are going to make the most of their own future, and contribute all they can to the world in which they live. If they don’t aim high, they will fall short. Life is full of challenges, and we want to equip Canfordians with the confidence and resilience to embrace and overcome them.'
