What does your future hold?

Secure your place at Aureus School for September 2021.

If your child has just started Year 6, it's time to start thinking about your secondary school choice and the type of future you want to have from September 2021.

The deadline for secondary applications for September 2021 is 31st October 2020. If you want to guarantee a place for your child at our school, make sure to apply as soon as possible. 

At Aureus School, we work with local partner primary schools to make the transition to secondary school as smooth as possible. Our three year key stage three curriculum is designed to provide every student with a platform to build upon throughout their time at the school, ensuring they are ready to make their GCSE choices in Year 9.

Every child in our current Year 7 cohort had an individual call from a member of our pastoral team to ensure they had a trusted adult they had spoken to prior to starting at Aureus. Parental feedback around transition told us that students were prepared and ready to start their secondary school career.

At Aureus School we repeatedly talk about Courage, Ambition and Resilience. We have the courage to be the best version of ourselves; we have ambition to achieve greatness through hard work; and we have the resilience to never give up and always bounce back.

By embodying these values, our new students will position themselves to be extremely successful during their time at Aureus School.

To give your child the best chance of succeeding in their secondary education, make sure to get your application in before 31st October. We can’t wait to meet you in the coming year!
