Berkhamsted House System

Berkhamsted Boys is composed of smaller units – Houses – where every individual receives pastoral support and academic guidance. The Houses, which are made up of pupils from different year groups from Year 7 to Year 11, and are the centre of pupils’ lives, giving a sense of belonging and encouraging self-confidence. Our Houses also provide an environment for cooperation and competition, with Inter-House competitions, music, quizzes, debating and sport. Students also regularly fund raise for charity within their House. Here is an example of House Performing Arts.

Sport at Berkhamsted

Berkhamsted has been voted 3rd Best Independent School for Sport – School Sports Magazine. We are proud of the breadth of sport offering throughout the School and also the number of teams we are able to field each term offering the majority of our pupils the chance to play a competitive match.

Leadership at Berkhamsted

Berkhamsted has a Deputy Head of Extra Curricular who leads a programme to provide students with opportunities to develop skills and abilities to enhance their awareness outside of the classroom. These activities cover sport, the arts, and outdoor education.

In addition there are many opportunities as the pupils progress through the school to take on leadership opportunities and develop the skills they may encounter for debating, decision-making, collaboration and public speaking.

Our CCF (Combined Cadet Force) offers students the chance to learn skills that will help broaden their experiences and in Sixth Form allow them to take on leadership roles and guide the younger year’s through the training.
