One of the most important decisions you will ever make about your child's future is choosing their Prep school. You'll find information on the website and in our Berky Blazer magazines, but do come and see for yourself.

Open Mornings

We hold several Open Mornings each year. The next is on Saturday 12th October 2019 and will include Prep, Pre-Prep and our wonderful Day Nursery - a superb facility where babies and toddlers receive the very best start.

Open Morning tours of the School are conducted by our Year 6 pupils - they thoroughly enjoy showing people round. They are rightly proud of their school and will give you a full and frank picture by telling you exactly what they think!

Visitors are invariably impressed with our Year 6 guides - they are seeing the ‘end product’ of a Berkhampstead education and it is lovely to hear their positive feedback.

Personal Tour

Alternatively, you may prefer to come in for a personal visit and tour. Getting a ‘feel’ for a school or nursery matters and to get a sense of our warm and encouraging atmosphere, do come and see Berkhampstead in action during the week. We welcome prospective parents to the School and Day Nursery and can arrange a time that is convenient for you.

If you like what you see, then it’s time for a Taster Day. This gives your child a chance to experience the ‘Berky’ way of life. Current pupils act as ‘buddies’ to ensure that your child is well looked after.

Entry Process

Following your tour, you will receive a registration form and then, if there is space in the year group, we will be in touch to offer a place. We can easily accommodate mid-year and mid-term starters, should you be moving to the area or changing schools.
