Berkhamsted town is a historic market town with a family environment. Its traditional High Street is bustling with both well-known brands and independent shops. Its great location provides easy links to London (direct trains 30 minutes from Euston) and Heathrow (40 minutes by car) making it easily accessible for both national and international families looking for a day or boarding school. Heatherton, our satellite Prep school in Amersham, is also directly linked to London with Chiltern Rail to London Marylebone or the Metropolitan Underground line.
For our Senior and Sixth pupils, we offer our own network of coach services which stop at many of our local villages and towns making the School commute an easy one for many families. For a detailed list of routes please click here.
The train station is easy walking distance from all our campuses, except for the Pre-Prep which is a relatively long uphill walk out of town and you may prefer to take a local taxi for the short journey.
