Headmaster, John Lever, commented:

'This wonderful performance reflects the broad intellectual fare that pupils are offered throughout their time here. Academic life at Canford is not about exam performance so much as the nurturing of energetic and interesting minds. The latter inevitably feeds the former and makes our pupils attractive to world class universities. It is interesting also that most of our top academic performers are much involved in the schoolís cultural and sporting life.'
