Mr Gavin Taylor

Welcome to Lockers Park.

We’re proud of our pupils’ academic success and the abundant opportunities they enjoy. Nestled in 23 acres of Hertfordshire woodland in Boxmoor, with Berkhamsted, St Albans and Harpenden close by and London only a 30-minute train ride away, we welcome boys aged 4 to 13 years.

We’re a small school. Purposefully so. We’re proud of this, because it allows us to know your son well, and so support him in achieving excellent academic results and giving him abundant beyond-the-classroom opportunities.

Every teacher and every member of staff will know your son and help him to make the most of his full and active school life. This is a community where family spirit and kindness thrive. In fact, we’ve been shortlisted for the Student Wellbeing Award by the Independent Schools of the Year awards 2021.

With an excellent curriculum combined with critical thinking lessons, interactive teaching techniques and optional Saturday school, our academic success is demonstrated through boys achieving Common Entrance with their very best results, passing to an impressive range of first-choice destination schools.

Beyond the classroom, our boys enjoy an enviable range of opportunities. These include: excellent Sport; unparalleled Music, Art and Drama; a rich outdoor life from playing in the shrubs and roaming our 23 acres at break time; the option of staying the night with us to do prep and to enjoy evening events such as film nights or ‘Dark Tower’.

Walking around the school, visitors often comment on the tangible energy and warmth of the Lockers Park community. I encourage you to come and take a look for yourself; please call or visit our website to arrange an appointment or come along to one of our next Open Morning's in March, May or October.

Parent Testimonial

The school gives a well-rounded education that allows time for extra-curricular pursuits – both formal (music, art, drama, sport) and informal (time in the shrubs!).

Good Schools Guide

Everything about the school is focused on bringing out the best in boys – from the 40-minute morning break where they can tear around fields and woodlands with just enough time for a bit of den-building, to the pristine well-structured classrooms.

Tatler Schools Guide

This highly regarded boys’ prep strikes the perfect balance between tradition and innovation.

Parent Testimonial

My sons do–and will always–hold Lockers Park close to their hearts. As parents, we feel, we have made the greatest decision of our lives sending our children there.
