Supporting families

We understand that families lead busy lives and to support you by providing a range of services that make life easier for those who are juggling full schedules. 

Our Day Nursery is open from 7.30am to 6.30pm, 50 weeks of the year (ages five months to rising four).

We offer wrap-around care from 7.30am to 6.30pm for children at Berkhamsted Pre-Prep, Berkhamsted Prep and Heatherton during term time.  Pricing and further details can be found on Berkhamsted Bookings.

Available each school holiday are a range of courses for children aged 3 – 16 years through Berkhamsted BASECAMP held across our sites.

A range of coach routes for Senior and Sixth pupils, including late coaches on our most popular routes.

For those aged 11 + we offer extended day support at the boarding houses including a meal, supervised prep and collection up until 8pm.

In addition to day support, Flexible Boarding options can be booked which include occasional, or even last minute, overnight stays (from 11+), weekly (from 13+) or full boarding (from 16+) in high quality accommodation.

Flexible Boarding

Our boarding houses can be arranged to accommodate additional boarders from Year 7+ whatever the length of stay. From one night or more, flexible boarders enjoy the same benefits as full boarders, including special outings and celebrations. All pupils who board are automatically welcomed into the family atmosphere of St John’s (Girls boarding) and Incents (Boys boarding).

Why Flexible Boarding

  • Parents can fulfil work commitments in this country or abroad in term-time in the knowledge that their children are being cared for.
  • Parents may take holidays in term-time without disrupting their children’s education.
  • Pupils who would benefit from more specific support for their academic progress can be offered additional help.
  • Parents may be away from home for shorter or longer periods and children would enjoy staying with friends in the boarding house.
  • It provides a secure environment to meet unexpected family difficulties.
  • Pupils who have long journeys to School might prefer to spend a few nights in the boarding houses during the week. This may also enable pupils who live further afield to take advantage of the many after-school activities on offer.
  • `Last minute’ accommodation can be provided by arrangement.
