Welcome from the Principal

Berkhamsted School Values
This 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 Girls 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 fundraise for charity within their House. Here is an example from House Performing Arts.

Sport at Berkhamsted
Berkhamsted has been voted 3rd Best Independent School for Sport – School Sports Magazine 2019. 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.
Boarding at Berkhamsted
Berkhamsted also offers boarding : full and weekly options are available; in addition, subject to availability, there are options to board on a flexi basis throughout the terms.
