Queen to Visit Berkhamsted School

Tuesday May 3rd, 2016

The Queen will visit Berkhamsted on Friday 6 May.

According to the Buckingham Palace website the Queen will visit Berkhamsted School ‘on the occasion of the 475th anniversary of its foundation’. This will be the first ever visit by a reigning monarch to Berkhamsted School, which has enjoyed the patronage of kings and queens as far back as Henry VIII – Berkhamsted School was originally named for his son Edward VI. The last visit to Berkhamsted by a reigning monarch was in 1841 when Queen Victoria and the Prince Consort passed through the town. In 1958 the Berkhamsted School buildings known as Newcroft in Mill Street were opened by Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.

The Queen’s visit will form a magnificent centrepiece for the school’s anniversary celebrations. It was founded in 1541 by John Incent, Dean of St Pauls and an associate of Thomas Cromwell.

Richard Backhouse, Principal of Berkhamsted School, said: ‘We are delighted to confirm that to mark the occasion of the 475th anniversary of the School, our Patron, Her Majesty The Queen, has accepted an invitation to visit Berkhamsted School on Friday 6 May.

We recommend the school to our clients and closely work with the school as one of the leading schools in the country that provides education for boys and girls.
