Lockers Park has been educating boys to the highest standard for over 145 years, offering pupils a first class education that is both balanced and happy. The school holds an exemplary record of winning awards and scholarships to leading senior schools such as Bedford, Eton, Harrow, Haileybury and Radley to name but a few. Sitting within 23 acres of beautiful woodland, Lockers Park is ideally situated in the heart of Hertfordshire with easy access to both London and several key airports.

We are proud to report that our recent inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) found that: “Pupils’ excellent communication skills, particularly oral ones, are a notable feature of the school and have a highly positive impact on their learning outcomes.”
At Lockers Park we are committed to developing each boy as a whole, seeking to build independence and resilience alongside self-confidence and self-esteem. We understand that ‘sit still and listen’ does not always ensure good results when it comes to schooling boys. Our staff have a progressive, supportive attitude and employ a practical approach to ensure that the boys are highly engaged in the classroom and achieve the very best academic results. Small class sizes (a maximum of 16) and a creative curriculum partnered with a strong focus on outdoor play and structured sport every day ensures the children are happy, energetic and well-motivated.
We are a small, family orientated school and we pride ourselves on the strong relationships between the boys and our dedicated staff team. Our recent Good Schools Guide review observed: “Everything about the school is focused on bringing out the best in boys.”
In 2015, we expanded our Early Years and Key Stage 1 provision with the launch of a purpose-designed co-educational Pre-Preparatory for boys aged 4 to 7. This modern, light space blends the more structured environment of the classroom with the freedom to learn around Lockers Park’s beautiful green setting. Children at the Pre-Prep can take advantage of the school’s full range of facilities including sports, science, music and drama. The Pre-Prep has proved a real success and we encourage parents to come and take a look.
