When you first enter the extensive grounds at Lockers Park you will see a Hertfordshire school that has educated boys to the highest standards for over 130 years, with scholarships and entrance places to the best British public schools. You will also see a whole host of academic, creative and sporting facilities that we have constantly expanded and updated, including our Science and Technology centre and the Centenary Hall with its new sound and lighting systems.
Lockers Park is proud to be a prep school exclusively for boys. We have been educating boys since 1874 and are proud of our distinguished history. We blend modern, state-of-the-art facilities and teaching methods with traditional values and well-loved customs.
In September 2015, we opened a new, purpose-designed co-educational Pre-Preparatory School for children aged 4 – 7 years as we believe that parents appreciate the opportunity to educate boys and girls together during this early stage. Children at the Pre-Prep enjoy the full range of facilities that the school has to offer including sports, science, music and drama as well as the use of our extensive grounds.
We value our small, family atmosphere, which means that the children are well known to all staff, from form teacher to matron. Class sizes are small, an average of 14 with a staff:pupil ratio of 1:8, enabling each child’s individual potential to be reached.
Our emphasis on outdoor play, exercise every day and a wide range of activities leads, we believe, to an increased concentration during lessons. Our children are happy, energetic and well-motivated.
The Tatler Schools Guide described Lockers Park as a ‘brilliant mixture of Boy’s Own meets Harry Potter — quirky traditions combined with real care’. You can read the full description here – Tatler Schools Guide.
