School Improvement Journey 
Our school is on a rapid improvement journey. Since the appointment of the new Headteacher in September 2023, the progress the school is making towards securing the improvement necessary to improve the educational journey of our students is intangible. 

In July 2023, the Ofsted monitoring visit highlighted the progress the school was making towards securing a good judgement. The pace at which the improvement is happening has significantly improved and the school is showing its true potential. 

Central to our recent improvements has been a dedicated focus on behaviour for learning, fostering an environment where students thrive and excel. Through our unwavering commitment to creating a responsible, supportive school community, we have witnessed a remarkable transformation in student conduct, paving the way for enhanced learning experiences. 

Currently, our spotlight is on refining teaching and learning practices to ensure every classroom is a beacon of educational excellence. By implementing strategies that leave no room for opting out, we are nurturing an environment where every student is inspired to succeed. 

At Aureus School, we are immensely proud of our journey this far and are confident that our progress is not only rapid but also sustainable.

Ofsted Report March 2022

GCSE Results 2023

Our staff and students were celebrating after the Class of 2023 achieved some outstanding GCSE results, with 42 per cent gaining Grades 9 to 4 and 4 per cent Grades 9 to 7.

A fifth of all English results (20 per cent) at our school were graded between 9 and 7, along with over a quarter (27 per cent) of all Biology grades.

This year also saw our first Dance GCSE students, with 14 per cent attaining Grades 9 to 7.

The students were only the second year to take GCSEs at Aureus, which is a member of the GLF Schools Multi-Academy Trust. 

High achievers included Malhar V, who said: "I'm really pleased to have received 9s in Maths and the Sciences. I prepared for my exams by doing lots of practice papers and I would advise other students to start revision early. I'm aiming to go to Oxford University."

Among the school’s other high fliers were Olivia S and Alice S.

“I'm really pleased with my results,” said Olivia, who is going to Henley College to do A Levels. “I started revising early. The time goes by so quickly so I would advise others to start way earlier than you plan to."

“I used flash cards and then nearer the time I used practice papers to help prepare and they helped me get used to the format of the exam."

Alice will go onto Didcot Sixth Form to study Maths, Biology and Chemistry. She said:

"I'm very happy with my results, especially the 9 in Art. I revised by going through all the textbooks and making notes, and then practice papers too.”

Our Headteacher at the time, Julie Hunter said: 

“Aureus School is proud of the Class of 2023. This group of students had Year 7 as their only interrupted secondary school experience and have taken every opportunity to develop both their academic and wider skills. There are many successes today, from students with seven-plus Grade 8/9s at GCSE moving on to study A Levels at Didcot Sixth Form, to others achieving the necessary qualifications they need to access apprenticeships, and others off to performing arts schools. We wish our second exam cohort well, and we look forward to meeting them again as Aureus Alumni."
