Martin Marriott Reunion


On Tuesday 6th December, former Headmaster Martin Marriott (1976 -1992) and current Headmaster, Ben Vessey will be welcoming Old Canfordians to the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple for a Reunion Dinner which will also mark the launch of The Martin Marriott Foundation.

The enjoyment of reuniting and sharing experiences both past and present will create a marvellous atmosphere and will be the main focus of the evening, with Martin speaking after dinner and reminiscing with OCs who were at Canford during his headship.  

At the event, Ben Vessey will officially launch The Martin Marriott Foundation which encompasses his vision to increase accessibility to a Canford education regardless of means and to provide financial support to allow more deserving young people from society as a whole to gain from the life changing experiences the school offers.  Currently Canford provides financial assistance of varying levels but it would like many more young people to have these opportunities and experiences.

Martin was delighted to be asked to add his name to this new Foundation,

“I find the thinking behind this initiative very exciting and challenging and am honoured and delighted to have been asked to be associated with it.  It is entirely in tune with the school’s policy over many decades of helping those who for whatever reason might be otherwise unable to benefit from all that Canford can offer them.  What more worthy project could any of us who have enjoyed and benefited from our time at Canford hope to support?”
