New Sixth Form
New Sixth Form building on Castle Campus.
This is an exciting step forward for the School and we look forward to sharing the updates with you over the months ahead.
Pupils have been educated at Berkhamsted School for over 475 years and we are honoured to have shared this beautiful and historic location with you. Founded in 1541, the School is proud of its roots and partnership with the town and, over the years, we have overseen the careful and considered evolution of our estate.
Looking to the future it is important for the School to address the shortcomings of our existing facilities. This is particularly true with regard to our Sixth Form provision, which needs to be enhanced to provide the best possible environment for our students to not only learn, thrive and excel but one that will equip them for their future.
We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.

We are delighted to be surrounded by a thriving community of neighbours, amenity groups and partner schools. Following our consultations with the community regarding our plans and subsequently receiving planning approval, we look forward to sharing with our continued vision for the new Sixth Form centre on Castle Campus.
We are determined to ensure our vision responds to Berkhamsted’s historical context. As a significant landowner in Berkhamsted we understand the importance of our plans and ensuring we are making a positive contribution to the area.

Build Notices – January 2023
Following a period of inactivity, we are pleased to announce that we have now obtained positive news from Dacorum Borough Council and the Environment Agency in relation to some complex planning conditions. This means we will be re-mobilising the project starting with some additional groundwork on the site in the coming weeks.
We expect this very exciting project to complete in 2024.
