The Berkeley Institute is a public senior high school in Pembroke Parish, Bermuda. As of 2016 it has about 500 students.[1][2]

It was established in 1897. It was originally located in the Samaritan's Hall, but in 1902 it moved to its current location.[1] It is one of two public senior schools in the territory.[3]

History[edit]

The Princess Royal Union Lodge, also known as Samaritan's Hall, was established in 1899.[4] Since its creation, the lodge has served as a school, a church meeting place, a youth club, a concert hall, and a meeting place for members of the lodge. Shortly after the lodge was created, the school was moved to its current location.
