Teaching at Hanford covers so much more than the National Curriculum.
Hanford is, in the words of parents, a ‘gem’. Nestling at the foot of Hambledon Hill in Dorset, it is a place where children are free to enjoy their childhood, can begin to develop lifelong passions and interests and are prepared for life at senior school and beyond.

Hanford may be a school but it feels more like a home to the 100 or so girls who live and work in its buildings
Hanford offers lots to keep the girls busy so the only limit is their imagination.
Book a place in our next open morning from 9:30 on Saturday 6th October. If you would like to come and see all that is Hanford we would be delighted to show you around.
Hanford girls make dens, climb trees and, in the summer, ride before breakfast. They make their own clothes and develop as free spirits. They learn resilience, confidence and a sense of adventure and they develop friendships which will last a lifetime…
“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.”
