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 put the Arts in STEAM by collaborating with the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects to prepare our students for the future and enable them to use their creativity.
In a world where the creative industries are playing such a large role in our students futures we feel it is essential that we celebrate, nurture and explore creativity throughout Aureus.
Students are encouraged to develop and explore their creativity through Art, Music, Drama and cross-curricular activities and experiences such as Shakespeare Schools Festival, Creativity Days, working with visiting artists, concerts and exhibitions of their own work.
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 360 students in Year's 7 and 8, we are space rich. We lease and let some of our spaces out as part of our community offer but we also host community activities including our Art Exhibition Space to showcase local artists.
