Welcome to Berkhamsted

An introduction from our Principal, Richard Backhouse, providing an insight into the ethos of our School

Welcome to Berkhamsted Prep


We are sorry we cannot take you on a tour of our Prep School, but we hope that this video provides a short insight into what you can expect to see when you do get to tour for yourself!

Music at Prep

Music is an important part of life at Berkhamsted Prep.  Nearly 50% of our pupils enjoy the opportunity to learn an instrument and many sing with a choir.  As a registered centre for the Associated Royal School of Music the pupils are able to take examinations on site; and the Prep also offers Trinity and RockSchool syllabuses.  In Year 4 the children take part in a music carousel programme which allows each pupil to trial at least 2 instruments – a way of trying before they commit to learning.  In addition there are regular performances each term which help with the children to build confidence and enjoying learning outside of the classroom

Drama at Prep

All our pupils take part in LAMDA lessons – helping them to build self-confidence and the opportunity to ‘be adventurous’ and for many step outside their comfort zone on stage.  The pupils take LAMDA examinations each year – with our cohort in 2019 achieving 100% distinctions in both Year 4 and Year 6 (we are eagerly awaiting results for Year 3/Year 5).

In Year 4 the pupils put on a drama performance for families and in Year 6 the pupils have the chance to participate in a final performance and take to the stage of our 500 seat Centenary Theatre on Kings Campus

Languages at Prep

Prep pupils are encouraged to learn a language and the pupils participate in French lessons each week from Year 3.

Sport at Prep

Every child from Year 3 has the chance to participate in a wide range of sports and represent the school at a local or even national competition.

Berkhamsted Senior Schools’

The School values continue through our whole group from Pre-Prep to Sixth.  This video provides a glimpse into how our Senior pupils have interpreted the values in their own words and provides an insight into life at Berkhamsted Boys and Berkhamsted Girls
