We are hoping to include their valetes in the 2023 edition of the Old Berkhamstedian Magazine but here are a couple of features already received. 

Burchy (6 July 2022) 

Emotional scenes on Castle Campus as the community said farewell to Mr Burchnall. 'Burchy' has dedicated 36 years to the school and the impact he's made to students in the classroom, Houseroom and Rugby field is simply unimaginable.
