Liz Richardson welcomes you to Berkhamsted Girls

The diamond structure of Berkhamsted School enables girls to flourish academically in a single-sex classroom environment while at the same time allowing them to experience numerous co-educational activities, events and trips.

At Berkhamsted your daughter will be encouraged to become actively involved in our wide-ranging extra-curricular programme as we believe it is the skills and abilities they develop outside the classroom that enhance the academic qualifications they achieve.

All girls from Years 7 to 11 are taught on Kings Campus and belong to one of the seven vertically structured Houses. The Heads of Houses and their tutor teams support and monitor the girls’ progress through the School, working with them, their teachers and parents. We believe a strong pastoral system is key to enabling the girls to fulfil their academic potential and it supports them through the challenges they face as they progress through their teenage years.

Your daughter will be encouraged to be ambitious, secure in the knowledge that she has the skills, ability, talent and support to achieve anything she sets her mind to – as William Butler Yeats said ‘education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire’. Girls are encouraged to set targets that are realistic and achievable and work towards them with energy and determination. Our aim is to prepare our pupils for life beyond school by nurturing their talents and self-esteem so they become proactive, confident, caring and resilient young women.

This website will give you some insights into life at Berkhamsted Girls, but the best way to gain a better understanding would be to visit King Campus. We look forward to welcoming you and your daughter.
