Canford School 1923-1983

£12.99

Product description

This little history of Canford School is intended as a tribute to those who over the last sixty years have contributed to the School's reputation. Canford - the name did not quickly win recognition when the School was first founded in 1923; but the days are over when it could be muddled with Canford Cliffs or, most wounding of all with its inkling of truth, be referred to as 'the Riding School in Dorset.' Its name is now readily accepted, and those who teach in or attend the School are the best advertisement for the reputation it has won since being founded. Canford was already old when the School arrived: a great nineteenth century building set in an ancient and lovely park gave those who worked and studied here a sense of preserving a priceless heritage.
This copy is in excellent, pretty much 'as new' condition, with no marks.
