Headteacher's Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to Aureus School, Didcot's only co-educational 11-16 comprehensive school. If your child enjoyed their primary school experience in a mixed gender setting then we are the school of choice for their post primary educational phase of learning.

We opened our £19 million state of the art building in September 2017 in the Great Western Park between the A4130 and the Wantage Road. September 2020 marks an exciting point in our school history as we will be half our expected size of 1200 students on site, with our first GCSE cohort graduating in August 2022.

Aureus School is a highly ambitious secondary school with a rigorous approach to academic standards. We are ambitious for educational success for all our learners. We collaborate with local stakeholders, such as Oxford University, Culham Science Centre and the Harwell Innovation Centre to shape our offer as a STEAM specialist mixed school to create choice for the wider community in Southern Oxfordshire.

Our mission is simple: We will instil courage, ambition and resilience in every student to empower them to achieve greatness as a global citizen through a combined drive for excellence.

After five years at Aureus, students will leave with a portfolio of expertise from a broad and rich curriculum. Aureus students benefit from learning in an 11-16 environment where they become leaders at an early stage in their school career. We aim to ensure every student leaves ready for post-16 studies, ranging from a pathway to Russell Group or Oxbridge Universities to vocational and technical opportunities.

Students are reminded to be 10% braver in their academic learning by challenging themselves to exceed their own expectations. Our Keystage 3 and Keystage 4 Raising Standards Leaders instil an expectation of working hard to achieve their goals. Students are expected to arrive to lessons ready for learning. Academic excellence is an expectation in all classes for all students.

Learning at Aureus extends beyond the classroom and the curriculum to the culture and ethos that is at the heart of the school’s learning environment. Our pastoral systems, enrichment offer and extra-curricular activities nurture each of our students so that all can thrive and become confident, articulate and inspirational global citizens. We develop critical thinking, leadership skills and healthy habits necessary for our students to have a successful future.

As one of a family of schools in the successful GLF Schools Trust, we have a wealth of Julie Hunterexperience and expertise to support the growth of the Aureus learning community, including the support of a successful and innovative thinking Teaching School.
Please do take a look at other pages on our website to learn more about what we do as an outward and forward facing academic establishment.
