  • Ex-student receives promotion

    Published 17/05/24

    A few months ago we had the absolute pleasure of visiting Foxes graduate Harry at his place of work in Bath.

    Harry has been working at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Bath since graduating from Foxes in 2017. Since working at the hotel, Harry has been given a promotion to Junior Food and Beverage Supervisor for all his hard work and perseverance. We were so excited to hear of this news, that we jumped at the chance to come and film him in action, and to talk to his manager, Sonia, who gave some wonderful insight into what it's like to employ someone with a learning disability.

    We had the best time with Harry and the team and we hope you enjoy the video.

  • Aurora Foxes unveil brand new Sensory Room

    Published 23/04/24

    We are delighted to unveil our new state-of-the-art Sensory Room, funded by Hilton!

    The aim was to create a space that provided a calm and relaxing environment for our students, that helps to regulate mood and emotions and promotes self-regulation.

    Aurora Foxes Occupational Therapist and Therapy Lead, Kerry Laing designed the space by sourcing sensory equipment that was both effective and affordable, meaning that if students found particular equipment to be beneficial, they would be able to re-create their own sensory spaces at home. Maintenance Team Leader, Steve Smith and his team then worked together to bring the vision to life!

    The Sensory Room is designed to engage all the senses and cater to the unique needs of our students. We're thrilled to see the students already enjoying the space and it's quickly becoming a new favourite spot. A big thank you to Hilton, Kerry, and Steve for making this possible!

  • End the stereotypes

    Published 20/03/24

    Thursday 21st March is World Down Syndrome Day, and with this year's theme being 'end the stereotypes' we thought it would be important to highlight some of the common misconceptions about individuals with down syndrome, by showing you what they CAN do!

    Misconceptions don't help people with Down syndrome, they limit them. At Aurora Foxes we challenge each of these misconceptions every day, and we never put limits on what our young people can achieve.

    Watch the video for some pure unfiltered joy!

  • Future Chefs Foxes Final

    Published 24/01/24

    The internal Future Chefs final - in collaboration with Springboard and Sodexo - took place at Aurora Foxes on the 16th January, and the food was absolutely phenomenal!

    Last term students participated in the initial stages of the competition by presenting their menus to their peers, and after a vote, the winning pairs got to enter into the final stage of the competition, where they would be making two courses (a starter and a main, or a main and dessert) that would later be judged by Gary Hind and Michael Taylor (Sodexo) and Cameron Corrick (Commis Chef at The Pig and Foxes graduate).

    A huge congratulations to our winners Lexie and JC, and Maija and Alex! The pairs will be competing against Aurora Boveridge College and Aurora Hedgeway School in February at Weston College to determine the overall Future Chef champions!

    A huge well done to all students for taking part, and a big thank you to our Sodexo judges.
