TOWERING above the rows of houses at Great Western Park is a brand new secondary school.
The science labs have been fitted, the football pitches grown and the walls are getting their first lick of paint.
Due to open in September, Aureus School is currently a blank canvas for first time headteacher Hannah Wilson who hopes to mould it into a school the whole community can be proud of.
She said: "This is a really exciting opportunity for me and for Didcot.
"It is very rare that you have a brand new school and a relatively new community where you can integrate the two.
