Welcome to Egerton Rothesay SchoolEgerton Rothesay is a non-selective school in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, with a mainstream curriculum catering for children from 5-19 years. We provide support for pupils who need specialist input within school because of a specific educational need – such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, speech and language needs or an autistic spectrum condition.
We believe that learning should be focused on the individual and should be about preparing each child for life after school not just exams. As part of this we have a Sixth Form where pupils can have further time for qualification in a supportive environment before college or work, with a wide range of vocational and academic courses.
ERS delivers a broad education and we provide pupils with a range of individually tailored strategies to support their learning needs and development. This means a unique and relevant education for each student. Our education promotes life skills and social skills to help make the next transition – whether to our sixth form or to college – and prepare pupils for everyday life. With a supportive environment and one-to-one help available, our pupils exceed their expectations and move on to their next choice of education or work, including many who go on to colleges and university.
Most of our pupils are funded by their parents but we also have over 14 different LEAs who pay for, or contribute to, the cost of pupils attending ERS when they feel that we have the best facilities and environment for particular statemented pupils. Pupils come from a range of backgrounds and our catchment area extends over a 35-mile radius – including Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, and North London boroughs such as Hillingdon, Enfield and Haringey – with many parents choosing to use our bus service for their child.
