SIXTH-formers at Verulam School in St Albans have bucked the national trend with an increase in the number of A and A* grades achieved at A-level.

Students opened up their envelopes this morning to discover the outstanding results, with a selection of pupils securing places at Oxbridge.

Headteacher Paul Ramsey said: “I am delighted with the results and especially proud of the four students who gained places at Oxford and Cambridge Universities. This is a record for the school!

“It was especially pleasing to see our students buck the national trend by increasing the number of A/A* grades achieved.”
