  • Beechwood Park is an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 3 to 13, in Markyate, Hertfordshire.

    The school mission is to 'nuture, engage and inspire pupils', giving them the skills they need to prepare for a future life and love of learning.

    The school has a strong co-curricular programme in sport, music, drama, art and design as well as Forest School. The school is fortunate to occupy a rual setting within parkland and woodland with outdoor learning opportunities in abundance.

    Interim Head Maureen Cussans says: 'Our senior pupils are living examples of our coeducational Mission; they are proudly individual yet connected by an education which teaches them to love life and squeeze every opportunity out of it; they embrace challenge and adapt to and are excited by change; they develop resilience and aspire to excellence in all that they do. They are happy, confident adventurers, who enjoy exploring big ideas, who argue and create, retaining balance and truth.'
