Berkhamsted School values

Our 2019 Prize Video provides an insight into our School values through spoken word written and performed by pupils in Year 9 and 10. Our School values are:

  • Aim High with Integrity

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 a performance from House Music.
