The School is easily accessible using both public or private transport links

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.
