Berkhamsted Girls

We are a Girls’ independent day and boarding school for pupils aged 11-16.

The diamond structure of Berkhamsted School enables girls to flourish academically in a single-sex classroom environment while at the same time allowing them to experience numerous co-educational activities, events and trips.

At Berkhamsted your daughter will be encouraged to become actively involved in our wide-ranging extra-curricular programme as we believe it is the skills and abilities they develop outside the classroom that enhance the academic qualifications they achieve.

All girls from Years 7 to 11 are taught on Kings Campus and belong to one of the seven vertically structured Houses. The Heads of Houses and their tutor teams support and monitor the girls’ progress through the School, working with them, their teachers and parents. We believe a strong pastoral system is key to enabling the girls to fulfil their academic potential and it supports them through the challenges they face as they progress through their teenage years.

Your daughter will be encouraged to be ambitious, secure in the knowledge that she has the skills, ability, talent and support to achieve anything she sets her mind to – as William Butler Yeats said ‘education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire’. Girls are encouraged to set targets that are realistic and achievable and work towards them with energy and determination. Our aim is to prepare our pupils for life beyond school by nurturing their talents and self-esteem so they become proactive, confident, caring and resilient young women.

Please do visit us to find out more about our School and the opportunities that lay ahead for your daughter.

Bursaries & Scholarships

It is the Governors’ policy to award Scholarships and Exhibitions on merit
to pupils whom Governors wish to attract to Berkhamsted because of the
contribution that they are able to make to School life, be that academic, musical,
dramatic, sporting, artistic or as potential leaders.

  • The Scholarship value will often be 10% of the tuition fees although higher awards may be granted.
  • Exhibitions may also be awarded.
  • Where there is a demonstrated need, means-tested funding may be available to those awarded Scholarships, which can raise the value of the award to a maximum of 50% of school tuition fees.
  • The Incent Award is awarded to talented pupils who would not otherwise be able to afford to attend Berkhamsted; the award may be up to the full value of tuition fees and can also include extras such as school uniform, travel to and from school, and trips and expeditions.

  • Scholarships and Exhibitions are only awarded on entry to Berkhamsted (from age 9+) and thus are not available to pupils within the School. Pupils at the preparatory schools within the Berkhamsted Schools Group, however, are eligible for Scholarships if applying for entry to the Senior Schools (Berkhamsted Girls and Berkhamsted Boys).

Scholarships are awarded for the duration of the pupil’s time in the School. However, all Scholarships and Bursaries may be withdrawn if it becomes apparent through the scholarship review and monitoring process that the pupil to whom an award was made is not meeting scholarship expectations as set out in the expectations document that will be sent with any offer.
