Students at Aurora Eccles benefit from access to facilities including a music room, science laboratories, cookery room, and technology and art studios, and enjoy regular use of our extensive sports and recreation facilities, including an indoor swimming pool, large sports field, activity centre and climbing wall.
All students take part in a range of individual and team sports, with both inter-house and external fixtures against other schools planned regularly throughout the academic year.
Set in 34 acres of beautiful countryside, Aurora Eccles also has a wealth of exciting outdoor learning spaces for students, including an area of magnificent private woodland, which is used for our Outdoor and Woodland Learning (OWLs) programme.
Incorporating a range of adventurous activities delivered by qualified Forest School practitioners, the OWLs programme offers students the freedom to be the architects of their own learning, all within a natural environment.
The learning experience for students at Aurora Eccles does not end at the school gate. All our students participate in school visits, trips and community projects to bring the curriculum subjects to life, and are encouraged to support our staff in organising them.
From Year 10 onwards, our students also have the opportunity to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award programme, through which they can experience new challenges and further develop their communication and teamwork skills.
