Welcome to Verulam School
Education beyond age 16 opens up enormous opportunities and at Verulam we encourage students to make the best possible use of their time.
The Lower Sixth year begins after GCSE examinations with the Induction programme. Students attend lessons, meet their subject tutors and receive information about their courses. Through our membership of the BSV consortium, students are offered a wide range of academic subjects and visits to Beaumont and Sandringham during the Induction period enable students to become familiar with new surroundings, teachers and friends.
In the Lower Sixth at Verulam, students are expected to take responsibility for their own learning and to develop independent study and time management skills. All students have tutorial sessions with their form tutor and tutor groups are designed to provide maximum assistance and monitoring of progress.
In addition to their academic work (a typical student will study four subjects at AS level and follow a general studies programme) students are encouraged to participate in a variety of other activities. Young Enterprise, Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, community service, the Prefectorial system, Sixth Form Block Committee, drama, bridge, music, supporting junior classes and many more opportunities exist.
Games are timetabled on Wednesday afternoons and ranges from competitive inter school matches in rugby, soccer, tennis etc. to non-competitive leisure activities. As young ladies are now an increasing influence within the Sixth Form the PE Department are keen to provide new provisions and activities suitable for all.
After AS level examinations students receive information about Higher Education. They attend a higher education conference at Herts University, visit individual institutions and receive information about the UCAS systems from a variety of sources.
Verulam Sixth Form is part of a consortium with Beaumont and Sandringham schools. We believe that by working together we are able to provide a broader education, make a greater contribution to our community and provide more opportunities for staff and students to reach their potential than would be the case in an individual school.
