Houses

Banksy Hawking Malala

The House System

Aureus School is split into three Houses, led by our Head of House. The names of each House 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 House has a chosen a charity to support throughout the academic year and take part in friendly inter-faculty competitions in sports and performing arts.

Our Houses are “vertical” in their structure which allows a student to have positive connections with those that are younger and older than themselves. Being in a House helps give a student a sense of belonging, in something bigger than their friendship groups or subject classes, but smaller than their whole school. 

House system also gives Aureus students the opportunity to play an active role and contribute to a community within and external to 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 House. 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 allow them to be proud of their contributions.

Banksy

The faculty name Banksy comes from the artist Banksy and reflects the importance of being creative and challenging the different views of the world. 

Hawking

The faculty name Hawking is taken from the scientist Stephen Hawking who famously wrote ‘A Brief History in Time’. He represents the importance of knowledge and looking to the future. Overcoming physical and mental obstacles to be the best you can be.  

Malala

The faculty name Malala comes from the Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai and shows the importance of showing resilience in the face of adversity. Striving for equality and showing the importance of education.
