Headteacher's Message

 Welcome to St Giles C of E academy website.

At St Giles we have children who are enthusiastic, polite and caring, parents who are supportive both to the school and towards their child’s learning and a very dedicated and professional staff, who ensure the children enjoy their learning and make good progress through taking part in exciting and motivating lessons and experiences. 

Throughout the year Our Christian Values of Compassion, Trust, Hope, Forgiveness, Peace and Thankfulness are embedded in everything we do and we are very proud to be a part of the community we serve. Close links with St Giles Church and All Saints Church are enriched with regular visits to school by Father Bob and and whole school worship held at both churches throughout the year.

As a school we have a strong focus on learning both in terms of academic achievements and progress and also in helping children become effective life-long learners. We also focus on children's emotional, social, physical and spiritual development.

We strive for excellence in all areas.

Whether you are an existing parent or a prospective parent I hope that our website will give you a flavour of our school and the opportunities and experiences the children who attend our school have access to.

I hope you will find the information on our website useful. - Mr R Grace Headteacher
