Head Teacher’s Philosophy
Hanford allows children to be children, to enjoy their childhood, while providing the opportunity to excel in any sphere. Hanford sows, nurtures and encourages the seeds of achievement and independence of all girls.
Hanford is a glorious Jacobean house deep in the Dorset countryside. This is a school of high spirits, mutual support, clubs and committees, ponies and riding before breakfast, home grown food and flowers. In a world which expects conformity, Hanford encourages individuality and imagination and provides a magical home-from-home environment.
