The school accepts pupils aged 3-18 and has around 1,956 pupils, of which a small proportion are students who Board.   Berkhamsted School is based across four separate sites in the town, and as such can offer a range of academic and recreational facilities of use by its students.

Values and Vision

Although nominally a co-educational school, Berkhamsted runs as a Diamond School, meaning that pupils are taught in co-educational classes at a young age, then moved into single-sex streaming in senior school, before being re-integrated in sixth form. This is intended to give pupils both the academic benefits of a single-sex education, and the social benefits of co-education. Being founded in the Christian tradition, the school works hard to foster the spiritual and moral development of its pupils, and inspire a sense of community and acceptance. 

ISI Inspection

“Pupils are very well educated, in line with the school’s aims. The quality of their achievements is good overall. They make good progress throughout the school and gain excellent results at A level in relation to their abilities because of their positive attitudes to study, dedicated and, on occasions, inspiring teaching, and curricular provision adapted to meet each pupil’s needs.”
