We are delighted to welcome you to Aureus, a state of the art comprehensive 11-16 school that opened in September 2017.
We collaborate with local stakeholders to shape our offer as a STEAM specialist mixed school to create choice for the wider community in Southern Oxfordshire.
Our mission is simple: we strive to educate the whole student so that each individual in our community may ‘Grow, Learn and Flourish’.
After five years at Aureus, students will leave with a portfolio of expertise from a broad and rich curriculum. Aureus students benefit from learning in an 11-16 environment where they become leaders at an early stage in their school career. Our mission is to ensure every student leaves ready for post-16 studies, ranging from a pathway to Russell Group or Oxbridge Universities to vocational and technical opportunities.
Our core values underpin all of our decisions. Our motto: ‘Nurturing Hearts and Minds’ inspires our students, staff, our parents and our community partners as we work together.
Students are reminded to be 10% braver in their academic learning by challenging themselves to exceed their own expectations. Students are expected to arrive to lessons ready for learning. Academic excellence is an expectation in all classes for all students.
Learning at Aureus extends beyond the classroom and the curriculum to the culture and ethos that is at the heart of the school’s learning environment: Dedicated and passionate staff, Inclusive learning environment, Dynamic teaching and learning, Creative curriculum and resources, Outstanding leadership at all levels, Thriving students who are healthy and happy.
Our pastoral systems, enrichment offer and extra-curricular activities nurture each of our students so that all can thrive and become confident, articulate and aspirational global citizens. We develop critical thinking, leadership skills and healthy habits necessary for our students to have a successful future.
As one of a family of schools in the successful GLF Schools Trust, we have a wealth of experience and expertise to support the growth of the Aureus learning community, including the support of a successful and innovative thinking Teaching School.
We look forward to welcoming you to Aureus School in September.
