A – Level students Succeed at Verulam!

Excellent results in this year’s examinations ensure that students will be proceeding to the university of their choice or into prestigious training programmes.

Headmaster, Paul Ramsey, was delighted by the success of our students with so many securing the places at top universities. The rise in the number of top A/ A* grades was also very pleasing.

It was interesting to see able students gaining places on training programmes with financial institutions including The Bank of England and Metrobank as opposed to accepting university places. This is an increasingly attractive option for those suited to a particular career.

Head of Sixth Form, Robert Skipper, reflected, ‘Alongside the success of many boys achieving prestigious places for Maths and Science at Russell Group universities, it is heartening that a number of girls will take up places to study Sciences at Oxford, Cambridge and The Royal Veterinary College.’
