Verulam in Top 100 Schools

Verulam School was delighted to receive a letter from the Minister of State for Schools, Nick Gibb, congratulating us on being in the Top 100 non-selective, state funded schools in England for both:

  • Percentage of pupils achieving five or more GCSEs at A-C
  • Percentage of pupils achieving the English Baccalaureate

Headteacher, Paul Ramsey, said “The achievement of our pupils is outstanding, and I am delighted that the hard work of pupils, parents and staff has been recognised by the Minister of State. I am also exceptionally proud of the progress made by all our pupils whatever their academic ability. All our pupils make exceptional progress in the core subjects of English, Maths and Science.”

Text Messaging Service

Following our successful pilot in Years 10 to 11 last week, we will be extending our text messaging service to all parents from Years 7 to 11 from next week.  Texts will be sent for being late to registration and for absence from school.  The 'late' text will be to inform you of the fact that your son was late to school so that you can discuss the importance of punctuality with him. The 'absence' text will be sent to parents who have not communicated with school regarding their son's absence asking them to contact the school to give a reason for the absence.  The aim of the texts is to communicate these two key elements to you effectively and efficiently to ensure the safety of all of our pupils.
