Berkhamsted School: A 475th Anniversary Portrait

31 August 2018

In 2016 Berkhamsted School celebrated the 475th anniversary of its foundation by Dean John Incent and it is to mark this event that this history was written. It covers the whole span of the schools' existence, though concentrating on the past 40 years when the idea of merging the schools grew, at times painfully, from a fancy to a clear-eyed determination.

The outcome was the creation of a very different school, which somehow contrives to preserve the virtues and the values which distinguished the two establishments from which it grew. Illustrated with a striking blend of photography and images from the School's Archive and stunning modern photography, this account by former English Master John Davison (JAD) aims to provide a clear narrative at the same time as highlighting personalities and including reminiscences from former staff and pupils.
