Head PhotoHidden in 23 acres of parkland in Hertfordshire, Lockers Park is a small and excellent day and boarding prep school for 150 boys. Educating boys since 1874, Lockers Park promotes academic excellence with an impressive range of scholarships attained each year and outstanding Common Entrance results. A closer examination reveals a school that delivers an environment of encouragement and support combined with well-loved customs and traditional values of respect, tolerance and fair play.

Lockers Park boys are happy, energetic and well-motivated and, as a school for boys only, their particular needs are well catered for. The welfare and happiness of the boys is at the heart of the school.

Academic excellence: Experienced teachers expect and encourage the best from every pupil. Class sizes are small, with an average of 14 and a staff:pupil ratio of 1:8. The recent ISI inspection noted that the boys are very thoroughly prepared for all external exams and, each year, leavers pass onto their chosen senior schools, from the country's best public schools to top independent day schools and prestigious grammar schools.

Sport for all: Boys at Lockers Park have the opportunity to take part in sports or physical activities every day in team games such as rugby, football, cricket and hockey or individual sports including squash, athletics and fencing. In addition to the fully equipped sports hall, there is also an astroturf pitch, heated swimming pool, croquet lawn and .22 shooting range.

The standard of sports performance is high but, more importantly, every boy has the opportunity to represent the school and the less confident sportsman receives every encouragement to flourish. Regular sports tours include the hugely successful cricket tour of South Africa

Music and the arts: Music is an important part of life at Lockers. Most boys learn a musical instrument and many learn several. The boys play in orchestras and chamber groups or sing in one of the choirs, including the excellent Chapel Choir. Lockers musicians perform regularly, both in the beautiful School Chapel and in prestigious venues in London or abroad. Lockers Park boys frequently win music scholarships to senior schools.

Drama is also popular. Every year, there are at least two plays or musicals and many boys enter LAMDA speech and drama examinations. There are also plenty of opportunities to perform at school assemblies, debates, inter-set competitions and traditional Christmas charades.

Lockers ethos: Nurturing boys as individuals is central to the ethos of the school. the small, family atmosphere, means that every boy is well known to all staff, as well as to each other.
