View of Berkhamsted Grammar School in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire. The school was founded in 1544 by John Incent, Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral (1540–1545). The school actually dates from before this time and was as a small religious house founded by John Geoffrey FitzPiers known as the Hospital of St John the Baptist. Incent, who was born in and lived in Berkhamstead oversaw the establishment of a school here. Author Graham Greene attended the school in the early 20th century. In 1997 the school amalgamated with the Berkamstead School for Girls and it is now the Berkhamsted Collegiate School.
