Beechwood Park School
Nurture . Engage . Inspire
“Going places. With its dynamic new head and, in the words of one happy parent, ‘feel good factor’, Beechwood should definitely be on the list of parents who want the certainty of a quality end destination for their child without compromising the joy of the journey.” Good Schools Guide, 2017
Nestled in the heart of the Hertfordshire countryside, yet just 15 minutes from Harpenden and 20 minutes from St Albans and Berkhamsted, Beechwood Park is a thriving Independent School for boys and girls from 3 to 13. With its own onsite Nursery, Beechwood Park is not only a day school with an extensive bus network, but also offers flexi-boarding from Year 5.
A 21st Century Education
The School offers an holistic education, which educates the whole child across a wide range of academic, extra-curricular, pastoral and spiritual experiences. The School’s unrivalled facilities and beautiful historic buildings and grounds provide further transformative opportunities for children to prepare for a future life of learning.
Beechwood Park successfully blends the old with the new; innovation with tradition. Boys and girls create ceramics in the pottery room located in the old wine cellar and fabulous music compositions in the dedicated Apple technology suite and the recording studio situated in a former coach house.
Raspberry Pi, Micro Bits and 3D Printers inspire Computer Science studies, whilst outside, pupils swing from the trees and hunt for bugs in Forest School and the extensive woodlands. From Greek or Russian Club to Cheerleading and Chess, there is something to captivate every curious mind from the youngest pupils in the School’s “Woodlands Nursery” through to 13+ candidates who head off to a range of excellent independent day and boarding secondary schools.
The Capability Brown sculpted grounds provide orienteering trails, an indoor swimming pool complex, outdoor classrooms and eleven football pitches where a multitude of matches play out under the supervision of the neighbouring sheep.
At the end of the jam-packed day, School buses depart and boarders’ tea commences, then homework, music practice and entertaining games, including the ever-popular “Colditz” - a Beechwood Park tradition!
To experience first-hand how Beechwood Park ensures ‘the joy of the journey’ for children, come to an Open Morning where you can see the School in action. Open Mornings take place each term. Visitors are also positively welcomed at other times by appointment.
