Hanford recently celebrated its 70th birthday. Generations of girls have now passed happily through our school enjoying the freedom of mind and spirit which is unique to Hanford. The school carries on the Cannings’ vision from when they founded the school in 1947. While their 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 and we do not increase fees year on year. 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 Catty Lowsley-Williams either by calling 01258 860219 or emailing her on firstname.lastname@example.org
Art Barn Exhibition & Auction
This autumn we will be having an art exhibition which will be available to view on line and in the Chapel. It is an event designed to raise funds for the Art Barn but also to celebrate the generations of creativity of Hanford girls. If you would like to help us raise funds for the Art Barn Exhibition by donating a piece of artwork then please get in touch with Catty Lowsley-Williams, who runs Alumnae events and fundraising at Hanford.
Indoor School RefurbishmentThe 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.£0.00 donated of £60,000.00 goal

A Stable RoofThe stables at Hanford provide a home for ponies and staff members but for the girls, however, it is their happy place. It is a go to destination at break time and free time. It is a place to groom ponies, feed ponies, cuddle ponies, chat to ponies as well as feed chickens and pet dogs so they can spend time caring for animals which Sarah Canning felt was so important. So the roof not only shelters the building but safeguards the happiness of generations of Hanford girls.£1,580.01 + £270.00 Gift Aid donated of £200,000.00 goal
