‘SO PROUD’: Verulam School celebrates fantastic sporting achievements

 Published on: 18th March 2024   |   By: Panayiota Demosthenous   |   Category: Uncategorized

Verulam School in St Albans is celebrating a number of recent sporting successes.

Among the school’s recent achievements are the U14 football team competing in the ESFA National Cup Quarter Finals and the athletics squad finishing third in the County League. The school also won the district badminton tournament, with their KS4 side finishing second in Hertfordshire.

This comes as the school has been voted as the 199th best sports school in the country out of 3,444 secondary schools nationwide in School Sports Magazine.

Liam Errington, Verulam School’s director of sport, said: “I am so proud to have made the top 200 sports schools in the country. A huge thank you must go to the students, parents and staff to make this possible. It’s great that huge numbers of boys are attending clubs and choosing PE as an option at Key Stages 3 and 4.

“This dedication to sport is showing with the successes we have been having in fixtures not only in Hertfordshire, but nationally, combined with the great GCSE grades we obtained last year, with 95 per cent of the boys getting a Grade 4 or better!”
