Hanford is an all girls boarding and day prep school set in glorious Dorset countryside where girls are encouraged to find new interests and pursue their passions. Year on year they achieve impressive scholarship results both in the classroom and on the pitches.
Our purpose is to enable both girls and staff to live fulfilling, happy and varied lives by means of an inspiring and adventurous education.

We would love to see you at our next Open Morning on Saturday 15th October 2022.

There will be lots of tours, activities, displays, cakes and flapjacks. If you would like to attend call Karen in Admissions on 01258 860219 or book a place here.

“They’ve been smiling from ear to ear ever since they joined Hanford and we credit you entirely for the confidence and happiness that seems to have followed them through their life ever since.”

“But the thing that’s especially made the school brilliantly different is the spirit in which it’s done things, with idealism, creativity and joy, wholly unselfconsciousnessly.”
