Faculties

Banksy Hawking Malala

Aureus School is split into three vertical faculties, led by our Heads of Faculty (HOF). The names of each faculty were chosen by the students and were chosen for the different qualities that are encapsulated in that person and what it means to be part of Aureus. This also supports our strive for Courage, Ambition and Resilience.

Each faculty have chosen a charity to support throughout the academic year and take part in friendly inter-faculty competitions in sports, performing arts and standards such as attendance.

The main function of the faculty system is to support the pastoral welfare of students, and that takes place within their coaching groups. Each faculty has its own non-teaching member of staff known as a Pastoral Welfare Leader who has the experience and time to work with students and be in contact with their families when there is a need that cannot be met by a coach. The work within each faculty is lead by a teacher who has the title of Head of Banksy, Malala or Hawking.

Being in a faculty helps give a student a sense of belonging, in something bigger than their friendship groups or immediate classes but smaller than their whole school. 

Faculties are “vertical” in their structure which allows a student to have positive connections with those that are younger and older than themselves. It is important for students to have the opportunity to play an active role and contribute to a community within their school, allowing them to develop skills and talents and acknowledge their successes in a wide range of ways. 

We encourage students to play an active role in the success of their faculty. Individual and team efforts are rewarded as well as participation. Students are expected to contribute to friendly inter-faculty competitions throughout the year in a way that always them to be proud of their contributions.
