About the School
Berkhamsted School is a leading independent day and boarding school that fosters a spirit of adventure. As a co-educational school, Berkhamsted still adopts their ‘diamond’ teaching structure that combines both single-sex and co-educational teaching.
Senior girls and boys at the age of 11 to 16 are taught separately and go back together again in a joint Sixth Form.From Year 9, students can choose to be a full or weekly boarder. Local students can also choose to a flexi-boarder from Year 7.
