Welcome to Hanford

I am delighted to introduce you to Hanford, a wonderful prep school for girls which nestles in a beautiful corner of Dorset.

Hanford holds a very special place in the hearts of girls, parents and staff;  as a place where girls can enjoy their childhood, begin to develop lifelong passions and interests and prepare themselves for the challenges of senior school and life beyond.

We would love to welcome you here in person so that you can have a tour, meet some of the girls and experience the magic for yourself. To arrange a visit please contact the School Office.

Rory Johnston
Headmaster
