We welcomed the Independent Schools' Inspection Team (ISI) in the Autumn term of 2014. The inspectors managed to see much of what makes Berkhampstead such a happy and vibrant place to learn.
The inspection endorsed so much of what we know to be true about the outstanding education we offer here - we are delighted with the findings. We know that we do a great job but it was super to read that we are ‘Excellent In All Areas’.
