Jamie Hornshaw welcomes you to Berkhamsted Prep

Berkhamsted Prep School is part of a supportive, family community which fosters a strong sense of belonging.

Being a pupil here is a unique experience; everyone is treated as an individual and our child-centred approach to education ensures they develop a natural curiosity and thirst for learning.

Your son or daughter will benefit immensely from being part of a school that is recognised as providing a high quality educational experience for its pupils; where they achieve their best because of their extremely positive and ‘can do’ attitude to school.


The exemplary pastoral care from our dedicated team of staff means your child will feel happy, secure and well cared for. In every year group, the learning experiences include a healthy combination of teaching approaches led by the child’s class teacher or by inspirational subject specialists in modern and well equipped facilities.

Whatever your child’s interests or abilities may be, they are encouraged to believe that anything is possible through diligence and perseverance. Opportunities abound here, whether academic, creative, spiritual, social, physical or otherwise. Children leave the Preparatory School full of self-confidence, having developed the courage to discover themselves and most importantly, to be the best they can.

The positive relationship between your child, the school and home is vital. In partnership together, we enable all of our children to possess the independence, skills and knowledge required to equip them for life at Senior School.

Come and discover our school for yourselves; I look forward to welcoming you!

Mr Jamie Hornshaw, BEd (Hons), MEd, NPQH, FInstLM

Headteacher of Berkhamsted Prep
