Wrap Around Care

Supporting families


scroll down

We understand that families lead busy lives and we aim to support you by providing a range of services that make life easier for those who are juggling full schedules. 

Our Day Nursery is open from 07:30 to 18:30, 50 weeks of the year (ages five months to rising four).

Pre-Prep, Prep & Heatherton

We offer Wrap Around Care from 07:30 to 18:30 for children at Berkhamsted Pre-Prep, Berkhamsted Prep and Heatherton during term time.  Each of the sessions are charged by credits which can vary dependent on if your child attends an after school club or not.  Credits are purchased as bundles to allow for a discounted rate for large purchases:

up to 50 credits – £5.00 per credit

51 to 100 credits – £4.75 per credit

101 plus credits – £4.50 per credit

Berkhamsted also operates a holiday camp on site.  Available each school holiday are a range of courses for children aged 3 – 16 years through Berkhamsted BASECAMP run by Berkhamsted staff.  BASECAMP runs from 08:00 – 18:00.


Senior School and Sixth

A range of coach routes for Senior and Sixth pupils, including late coaches on our most popular routes.

For those aged 11 + we offer extended day support at the boarding houses including a meal, supervised prep and collection up until 20:00.

In addition to day support, Flexible Boarding options can be booked which include occasional, or even last minute, overnight stays (from 11+), weekly (from 13+) or full boarding (from 16+) in high quality accommodation (subject to availability).

Flexible Boarding

Our boarding houses can be arranged to accommodate additional boarders from Year 7+ whatever the length of stay. From one night or more, flexible boarders enjoy the same benefits as full boarders, including special outings and celebrations. All pupils who board are automatically welcomed into the family atmosphere of St John’s (Girls boarding) and Incents (Boys boarding).

Why Flexible Boarding

  • Parents can fulfil work commitments in this country or abroad in term-time in the knowledge that their children are being cared for.
  • Parents may take holidays in term-time without disrupting their children’s education.
  • Pupils who would benefit from more specific support for their academic progress can be offered additional help.
  • Parents may be away from home for shorter or longer periods and children would enjoy staying with friends in the boarding house.
  • It provides a secure environment to meet unexpected family difficulties.
  • Pupils who have long journeys to School might prefer to spend a few nights in the boarding houses during the week. This may also enable pupils who live further afield to take advantage of the many after-school activities on offer.
  • `Last minute’ accommodation can be provided by arrangement.

Full Boarding

Although the majority of pupils attending Berkhamsted are day pupils, we offer excellent boarding facilities for pupils aged 11 – 18 should they wish to board.
