4 July 2017: Miss Hannah Wilson has been appointed as the Headteacher of Aureus School. If you follow education on social media, Hannah is @Miss_Wilsey on Twitter and is also a co-founder of #WomenEd, which focuses upon connecting existing and aspiring women leaders in education.

The slides used in the 22 June Information Event are available for viewing here.

Find out more about the Great Western Park development here.

GLF chief executive officer Jon Chaloner has over 20 years of experience as a teacher, and said being asked to provide that service for a new settlement like Great Western Park was a major responsibility – and also a huge opportunity. “The establishment of a new community like this is an exciting time for the people who are going to live there, and also for us as education providers,” he explained. “Schools play such an integral part in building the community around them and binding people together, so local residents have to be sure that they’re entrusting that role to someone who is capable of fulfilling it. That’s why Aureus is a huge opportunity for us – and it’s why we’re so keen to meet and talk to potential parents, so we can find out what it is that they’re looking for in an education provider, and also so that they can see the kind of success we’ve had elsewhere.”

Aureus is planned to open in September 2017, with parents able to apply for places during the 2016-17 academic year. It is being built to accommodate an initial eight forms of entry in year groups seven to 11, with 240 pupils in each year, up to a maximum capacity of 1200. As the population of Great Western Park increases, the school’s intake will also be in a position to grow, and Mr Chaloner said GLF was excited about the prospect of being in on such a major project from the outset. “In just two years, our group has gone from two schools to 12, with several more to come, so we already have a strong track record of going into new areas and communities, listening and being sensitive to their specific needs and concerns, and creating new learning environments to meet those requirements,” he explained.

“Every new school is as exciting an opportunity for us as it is for the children attending it, and their families,” he continued. “We would urge anyone who’s interested in the school to come along, so we can hear their views on what’s needed and what they’re looking for in a new school, and they can also see how we’ve gone about doing things in our previous schools and communities.”
