Academic Stretch & Support
Maintaining a positive learning environment for every pupil
We cater for children of all abilities – whether they are finding their academic studies particularly difficult and need access to alternative ways of learning, or whether they need more of an academic challenge in order to accelerate their learning and personal achievements.
At Berkhamsted Prep we operate a ‘Whole School Approach’ to meet the needs of every student. We understand that all children are different and we use a variety of teaching methods so that all students have the opportunity to excel.
Overseen by our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO), our Learning Support department supports pupils to ensure they are able to achieve to the best of their ability. If a child is identified with learning difficulties at the Pre-Prep or Prep, they will receive the support they need throughout their time with us.
Learning support lessons are arranged on a one-to-one basis and may be subject to additional charges.
We facilitate all pupils achieving their true potential. Valuing, understanding and supporting pupils of all abilities is vital to make sure that every child remains motivated to succeed.

Value added is the name of the game: most enter the nursery at national standard, but by year 6 the vast majority are well beyond it, with many of them significantly above.
Pupils develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and resilience to a mature level, encouraged by the school’s focus on perseverance.
