They loved the whole trip but especially the Eiffel Tower and Disney


The view from Platform 2 - spectacular


At the Eiffel Tower


Some of the students in Year 9 looked at 'numeracy in art' for STEAM day and took inspiration from the artist Jasper Johns.  Using different media they created some really stunning number art, that will be compiled together to create one amazing piece for the Maths corridor.


As part of this week's STEAM day, some of the Year 9 students made puppets in Drama and used green screen technology to bring them to life. Mrs McAuliffe, our head of drama, was so impressed with the quality of the puppets and the effort that was put in by all the students.


This heart dissection was done alongside Miss Mackenwells who used her expertise as a vet to explain the workings.


Our first live awards event at Aureus. A great turnout, some amazing awards given out and lots of clapping and cheering to celebrate years 7-10. Well done to everyone who received an award tonight.


Tonight we celebrate the amazing work achieved by our GCSE art students, at our Yr10 & 11 art exhibition.


And they’ve completed their expedition section! On their way back now! Well done!!!


The DofE students are in good spirits, if a little wet and heading on to the finish! Well done all of you!


Day 2 of walking has started for our Silver DofE students. Good luck!


Our Computing Masterclass was full today. Year 5 using brand new micro:bits and learning how to do 3D design in tinkercad. Mrs Strange had a great time with our computing experts of the future


Some of out very lucky Year 10s have travelled down to London today to see ‘Wicked’ at the Apollo Victoria Theatre! Enjoy!!


Faculty Charity week totals are in and we raised ❤️ Banksy 70.50 for The Royal British Legion, 💚 Malala £90.34 for Macmillan and 💙 Hawking £30 for Blue Sky Thinking.


In Biology we have replaced chicks with cress seeds. Year 7 have designed suitable environments to germinate and grow the best cress. Each class has a week to look after their environments and see who can grow the tallest.


Good luck this morning to our Yr9 Bronze DofE students, as they wake up to another beautiful and sunny day. Stay hydrated and sun-cream-ready! We’re so proud of you.

Aureus Remembers

Our whole school community came together today to honour all those who have fallen in the line of duty.

Students that are in the military, Cadets, Guides or Scouts were invited to wear their uniforms into school and were joined by our service children to form a short service held in our courtyard. Sophie, Lorcan and William presented beautiful readings, some of which they had written themselves, before Mrs Burbage, our Head of Music, played The Last Post.

The whole school community then took part in a two minute silence.

Members of the Leadership team, staff and students made their way to the front of the school to lay our wreaths in our garden of remembrance. We have been inviting our school community to decorate rocks this year to lay in remembrance. The display is quite breathtaking.

Ms Saul, Assistant Headteacher for Personal Development said, “Showing remembrance is very important to Aureus. We have a large community of service children and young people in the cadet forces. The short service is always an emotional one and this year we came together to remember. One of our students wrote an incredibly moving speech about his father who is in the armed forces, he read it confidently and with real pride.

She continued, “I feel proud of our students on a daily basis but today they really excelled themselves. I would also like to thank Miss Hunt-Brough and Mrs Burnett with all their support today. They had a vision for this year's memorial garden and they have worked hard to make this happen by running lunchtime rock decorating sessions and setting it up this morning. The photos are stunning.”
