Welcome to our School

If you don’t already know, Beechwood is a prep school in Hertfordshire, near St Albans, Berkhamsted and Harpenden, welcoming boys and girls from the age of 3 all the way up to 13.  That’s what and where we are, but there is so much more I can tell you,  I hardly know where to start!

Every day is exciting, every day is full of adventure, opportunity and friendship.  Every day I discover something new and learn how to be a better version of the person I was today.  If I could bottle the essence of Beechwood and give it to you to try, I would, but then that’s what memories are and some of my best memories have been, and are still being made at Beechwood!

Visiting the Isle of Wight, meeting famous authors, playing sport, learning the clarinet, reading for charity, having fun in the Boarding House and being part of the School production – there is so much to tell you.  It is virtually impossible to pinpoint what makes Beechwood special – maybe it is simply being part of a big, caring family, or perhaps it is the opportunities that I have every day, or knowing that when I DO have to move on to senior school, that my teachers will have made sure that I am completely ready?  I think it is all of this, and more.

If you are considering joining Beechwood, then you are making a brilliant choice – but you need to come and see for yourself how YOU will fit in and be part of this amazing place!  We can’t wait to meet you and show you OUR school – click here to arrange your visit!

See you soon!
