Dear Pupils and Parents,
It is a great pleasure to welcome you to Verulam School and to invite you to join with us in pursuing our goal of excellence in the academic, sporting and social spheres of life. I hope you enjoy reading our prospectus and feel inspired to find out more about Verulam – particularly by visiting us on either our open evening or during open week.
At Verulam we believe that:
* The goal is excellence
* High expectations of conduct, cooperation and achievement are the norm
* All pupils should make good progress and fulfil their potential
* All pupils should engage in the life of the school and enjoy their learning
* Every lesson counts
* All pupils are ambassadors for the school
We are specialists in boys’ education and understand that only making our expectations clear and setting high targets will help pupils fulfil their potential. We also recognise that boys succeed when they engage in the sports, social or other extra-curricular activities provided by the school. Most importantly these activities help them to become confident, articulate young men who can succeed in higher education, employment and their personal lives.
At Verulam this means that boys are set regular targets, receive assessments and feedback five times a year and are expected to sign up for the Extra Curricular Core Offer – whether that be involvement in a club, sport, music or drama.
The best adverts for Verulam School are the students – I hope your son wishes to become one.
