The Berkhamsted School community is deeply shocked and saddened by the news that Old Berkhamstedians William and Edward Cousins were two of the victims of the plane crash in Sydney, Australia, along with their father, his partner and her daughter.

William (25) and Edward (23) attended Berkhamsted School from the age of 11-18 and are fondly remembered, by staff and their peers. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends at this extremely difficult time.
