Our approach

Lockers Park blends forward-thinking and kinaesthetic learning within a traditional prep school environment. Whether your child is a bookworm, a sportsman, a budding scientist or an all-rounder, our approach centres around each individual child, allowing them to gain in confidence and flourish. The curriculum includes structured sport every day, which not only promotes sporting excellence but also leads to increased concentration and academic success. This approach is the same today as that instituted by the School’s first Headmaster 145 years ago.

A balanced mindset

For us, social and emotional development goes hand-in-hand with academic progression, enabling pupils to become independent thinkers and develop moral principles. Mutual respect, high personal standards, honesty and tolerance form the foundation of all our teaching, ably summarised by our school motto – Bene agere ac Laetari – good results, good manners, good fun.

Academic success

Lockers Park boys leave as well-rounded individuals, self-motivated and ready for the excitement and challenges of senior school life. Our excellent academic record sees many pupils move on to the country’s leading public and independent senior schools including Bedford School, Berkhamsted School, Eton College, Harrow School and St Albans School –see Destination Schools.

Our community

We have an open and inclusive community where pupils are encouraged to value and be supportive of each other. Our recent ISI Inspection highlighted the co-operative and caring ethos at Lockers Park. Indeed, there is a tangible energy and warmth within our community, much commented upon by current parents and visitors.
