Lockers Park School is a day and boarding preparatory school for boys and co-educational pre-preparatory school, situated in 23 acres of countryside in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire. Its current headmaster is Christopher Wilson.

History[edit]

Lockers Park was founded in 1874 by Henry Montagu Draper,[3] an old boy of Rugby School.[4] Its buildings and sports fields stand in 23 acres (93,000 m2) of the parkland which surrounds a Georgian country house called The Lockers,[5] which was once the home of Ebenezer John Collett and has been converted into apartments.[6] The new school was designed by Sidney Scott and it has its own chapel which dates from the same era.[7]

In the 1940s and 1950s, the veteran England all-round cricketer Frank Woolley (1887–1978) was the school's cricket coach.[8]
