Supporting Hanford

Hanford was established over 76 years ago. Generations of girls have now passed happily through our school – whilst the Cannings’ vision and values remain, our buildings and facilities need investment for the years to come.

In order to keep Hanford fees as low as possible we use them to cover purely the operating costs of the school. This means that site refurbishment is heavily dependent on donations. It also means that refurbishment of this beautiful site is very carefully considered.

Any donation, no matter how great or small, can make a make an invaluable contribution to the continuation to one of the most extraordinary, special and unique educations for girls.

If you would like to talk in more detail about making a donation please contact us by calling 01258 860219 or emailing

Donation Options

  1. Hanford School-Indoor School Refurbishment

    Indoor School Refurbishment

    The indoor school at Hanford is an essential building. It is not only used for all the riding lessons (flatwork, jumping, equestrian vaulting, riding displays and Tetrathlon etc) it also provides a lovely sheltered space for puppy parties on Well-being Day and end of term catchers’ parties. All this use has taken its toll and now we need to raise funds for a new surface and kick boards to breathe new life in to the arena.
