Boarding at Berkhamsted

Pupils may be full boarders, weekly/flexible boarders or day pupils. The two Boarding houses, accommodating boys and girls separately, are well equipped and within a few minutes’ walk of the main campus. We place great importance on the benefits that young people gain from their experience of living in a community. We aim to create an environment for boys and girls in which their happiness is key.

Both boarding houses – St John’s for girls and Incents for boys – are led by experienced staff. Matrons, domestic staff and residential tutors complement the team structure to provide full supervision within each house every day.

Both houses offer twin bedrooms for junior pupils and study bedrooms for senior students. All bedrooms are furnished and decorated to a very high standard. In St John’s the bedrooms are all en suite and many of the bedrooms in Incents have en suite facilities. Leisure time can be spent in lounges, in small communal kitchens where snacks can be prepared or, if physical activity is preferred, boarders can use their free private membership at the Knox-Johnston Sports Centre, which offers a fitness suite, sports hall and 25m swimming pool. Here, pupils can take part in any of the classes, ranging from aqua aerobics to pilates.

Computers and Wi-Fi internet access are available in both boarding houses.
