Some of the students in Year 9 looked at 'numeracy in art' for STEAM day and took inspiration from the artist Jasper Johns.  Using different media they created some really stunning number art, that will be compiled together to create one amazing piece for the Maths corridor. https://t.co/Yn5XjfVK4U

Student Leadership Team & Prefects

Student Leadership Team

The role of a Junior Leadership Team Prefect is a highly respected and very important one.  Not only do the younger students in the school look to the Prefects as role models but they are also students who are there to help and support them in many different aspects of their school life. Parents and visitors to the school also see them as high respected members of the school community.

All our Junior Leadership Prefects will have general responsibilities as part of the Aureus School team, this would include being part of a daily duty team across the school or support specific areas such as the Music and PE department. Throughout the year there will also be other roles the Prefects will be expected to fulfil such as Parents Evenings, Open Days and other events. They are skilled in public speaking and communicating with the local residents.

The Junior Leadership team prefects will attend meetings with the Headteacher, Assistant Headteacher Personal Development and Heads of Faculty when required. They will also regularly liaise with the department / faculty they have responsibility for.
