Covid-19

The welfare of our girls and staff is our priority at this unprecedented time. Fortunately, thanks to the commitment of staff and the support of our superb IT team, this will not be at the expense of the adventurous and inspiring education for which Hanford is known. We prepared for the eventuality of school closures by creating a Prospectus for Remote Teaching and Learning, which has already been circulated to parents. The teaching staff are looking forward to next term and are working hard to adapt and develop their respective subject’s syllabus in preparation for remote teaching. We are committed to ensuring the continuity of education for our girls, even in these most challenging of circumstances.

Hanford is, however, more than its academic lessons – it is a family. We are already working as best we can to recreate this aspect of our glorious school next term, should we have to remain closed. Just because we can’t all be together at Hanford for a while does not mean that we can’t still have Chapel, read to the Juniors, enjoy (virtual) rides up Hod and Ham, have Committee Meetings, watch Summer bloom in the gardens, and have film nights together. As we become increasingly familiar with the new reality, we will think of new ways to ensure the girls are not only educated by Hanford, but continue to feel part of their community, regardless of where they are in the world. In the meantime, please keep an eye on our Instagram page, which documents the Easter Bunny’s Hanford adventures on Instagram

In accordance with government guidance, Hanford is closed to visitors. However, if you have any questions, or would like a virtual tour of the school, then please contact Karen Mallinson Head of Admissions – mallinsonk@hanfordschool.co.uk).
