The organisation has existed in its current form since 1998 after the amalgamation of The Old Berkhamstedians’ Association and the Old Girls’ Guild.

The purpose of The Old Berkhamstedian’s is two-fold; to encourage and facilitate contact between former pupils and to support the Berkhamsted Schools Group and its activities through its Charitable Trust.  Former pupils of the Schools are invited to participate in this vibrant and growing community of over 7,000 Old Berkhamstedians and to have a look at the work and activity that takes place.
