Prep Schools

Pupils join Canford at 13+ from around 50 different schools each year.  We have strong links with a wide variety of Prep Schools across the counties of southern England, London and the Channel Islands.  Pupils do also come to us from schools across the UK. We strive to build good relationships with staff, parents and pupils at all Prep Schools with which Canford has a connection.

Our purpose is twofold. We are aware of just how crucial and often difficult it is for parents and pupils to make a decision about senior school education. In order to make an informed choice on whether Canford is the right place for you,  it is important to ensure that Prep Schools are fully aware of what Canford offers, its ethos and its aims. We invite Prep School children to take advantage of Canford’s expertise both inside and outside the classroom and run a range of programmes every academic year including sporting events in Rugby, Hockey, Cricket and Swimming; a Leadership programme for Year 6 and above; and Science, Art, Drama, Classics, Maths and Musical workshops.   Some take place at Canford while others are based at the Prep Schools themselves.   These introduce the children to aspects of life at Canford and allow staff to pass on the knowledge and experience gained from working with older pupils to those from Year 3 upwards.

Staff are always happy to come and talk to staff, parents and pupils at Prep Schools about life at Canford. If you are interested in finding out more about any aspect of our Prep School calendar, please contact any of the Admissions staff or Director of Marketing and Communications, Philippa Scudds
