We are proud to be part of the St Albans BeauSandVer Sixth Form Consortium, comprising three partner schools: Beaumont, Sandringham and Verulam Schools.
BeauSandVer has been providing a wide variety of after-school and evening courses over the last ten years for children, parents, family members, teachers, and anyone in the wider community.
Classes include modern foreign languages (Spanish, Italian, German, French, Mandarin for children), arts and crafts classes, including woodworking, art textiles, watercolour and oil painting, a community choir and jazz band, creative writing classes, Pilates, yoga and children’s science club, music band and coding
Classes are held on site at the three schools. All courses are partially subsidised by the BeauSandVer Consortium and we aim to keep prices as low as possible. The courses on offer for Autumn term 2018 for parents and other members of the community are:

We are delighted to be able to offer Mandarin lessons after school for students in Years 7 and 8 with an experienced teacher who has a degree in Chinese and has lived and worked in China.
