OPEN MORNING - Saturday 8 May

Lockers Park is a small, family-orientated Pre-Prep and Prep School for boys aged 4-13 years. Located in Boxmoor, Hemel Hempstead, with Harpenden and St Albans close by, the school holds an excellent academic reputation, preparing pupils for leading senior schools. 

Filled with experienced teachers of boys, Lockers Park is ready to give your son the best possible start. As a small school, pupils enjoy highly individualised learning, intimate class sizes, and a thriving wider life that gives boys the chance to try everything there is on offer. For younger pupils this includes Beavers, Cookery and Science Clubs and much more.

Families find the school’s free wraparound care programme hugely helpful (running 7.30am-6.00pm for Pre-Prep pupils and 7.30am-7.30pm for Prep School pupils - all included in the termly fees). For Years 1 and above, a Minibus Service operates for those travelling to and from Harpenden and St Albans.

Lockers Park’s next Open Morning is on Saturday 8 May, with both virtual and on-site tours available. The Headmaster, staff and pupils will talk through what makes a Lockers Park education so unique and answer your questions. Book your space here.
