Welcome to BeauSandVer Community Courses


The BeauSandVer Consortium in St Albans ( Beaumont, Sandringham and Verulam Schools) 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.


We have had a very busy and successful term with more people attending classes than ever before, coming from St Albans, Hatfield, Welwyn, Watford and beyond.


Over 200 adults are studying  languages at Beaumont in German, Spanish, French and Italian at Beginner, Continuer, Intermediate and Advanced levels.


A new Coding course for primary school students has been very successful at Sandringham School with 20 students. .  The Community Choir for adults now has over 50 members.  They will be singing Christmas carols in St Albans town centre on Wed 20 Dec from 6.30 to 7.30pm.



 At Verulam  36 adults are attending Functional Skills Maths and English courses which will give them City and Guild Qualifications equivalent to a GCSE Pass ( at Level 2). The Creative Writing Course goes from strength to strength with more writers gaining publication.

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.

NB Classes will not run if too few people enrol. Fees are not refundable for people dropping out of a course or missing classes. Fees will be refunded only if a course does not run.
