Aureus is a STEM school but we were keen to create a STEAM community so that the whole school develop STEM skills alongside developing an appreciation of the Arts.
We believe that the Arts are an integral part to the holistic development of the whole child. As part of our Community Arts provision, we pledge;
- An Artist in Residence
- An Art Gallery
- An Art Therapy Room
- Creativity Days
With only 120 students Year 7 students in Year 1 and an additional 240 students joining us in 2018, we are space rich - we lease and let some of our spaces out as part of our community offer but we also plan to host community activities including an Art Exhibition Space to showcase local artists.
If you are interested please see full details in the documents below.
We believe in Nurturing Hearts and Minds through the holistic development of the whole child. Academic rigour is important and we will have high expectations of our teachers and of our learners, however, it is equally important for our young people to be emotionally literate, well-rounded individuals who are highly-employable global citizens.
Aureus is not an exam factory, Aureus is a space where our whole community will be supported to Grow, Learn and Flourish. Our learning experience will be memorable and enjoyable, in and out of the classroom.
Our young people will become emotionally and mentally prepared for life with a toolkit of self-care strategies to maintain positive wellbeing and mental health into adulthood.
We pledge to creating a space to holistically educate the whole child through;
- Art Therapy
- Martial Arts
- Mental Health & Wellbeing programme
- Family Dining Experience
The holistic education opportunities have been carefully created as preventative strategies to support your child as they grow, learn and flourish into young adulthood;
- Our community time in the morning will prepare our students for learning - the carousel of activities will wake them up and warm them up
- Our community lunch time ensures that everyone eats a healthy, nutritious meal
- Our community time in the afternoon will support our students in processing their day - coaching time will support them in celebrating the highs and managing the lows
- Our personal development time from 3.40-4.30pm will inspire and empower them to thrive.
