Groundbreaking Verulam Latin Success!

Many congratulations to the following Year 10 boys who have achieved a prestigious Latin qualification this summer – a ‘first’ for Verulam and a unique achievement among St Albans schools!

All boys achieved A* or A in the Welsh Board Latin Language examination which comprised two papers – comprehension and translation – thoroughly testing their knowledge of the Latin Language, and their thinking, analytical and ‘decoding’ skills.

Their success is all the more significant as it was achieved over a fraction of the recommended time via lunchtime extra-curricular lessons. This required the boys to ‘dig deep’ for extra commitment and perseverance over and above their timetabled lessons and homework, and learn the techniques of sitting a public examination a year before their GCSEs. Congratulations!
