The BeauSandVer Sixth Form Education Trust incorporates Beaumont, Sandringham and Verulam schools.

Paul Ramsey, head teacher at Verulam School, said: “I am delighted that the BeauSandVer consortium now supports over a 1,000 students.

“Working together, we are able to deliver an amazing range of subjects and meet the needs of a growing number of young people from St Albans and surrounding areas.”

The partnership started over 20 years ago to offer a broader curriculum for students.

Martin Atkinson, head teacher at Beaumont School, said, “The key benefit of working in the BSV consortium is the comprehensive offer of A level and BTEC and CTECH courses that three schools can combine to put on offer which almost eradicates the possibility of clashes and not being able to take certain combinations of subjects.

“Alongside this, the large numbers of experienced teachers being able to share best practice in a coordinated format means we can really ensure the high standards we are renowned for.”
