Welcome to St Giles’ and St George’s Academy, We are a Church of England school who believe in building strong, positive relationships between our pupils, parents, staff, governors and the community and we welcome visitors to our school.
Inspired by our Christian faith, we guide children on a personalised journey towards achievement. As a learning community, we are committed to ensuring that children are equipped with, skills and aspirations to reach their full potential in mind, body, heart and spirit.
One of the lasting impressions visitors to our school comment on is the behaviour, manners and productivity of the learners in an orderly, quiet and calm environment. Children are really inspired to learn here because their teachers provide them with learning opportunities that are motivational, they encourage children’s curiosity, intellectual thinking yet are achievable and interesting.
The second aspect of our school that is frequently commented upon by visitors to the school, is the safe, secure setting. We have a large diverse site, huge grassed areas, a little ‘forest’, pond area, play trails and four different playgrounds where children learn to get along with each other relax and learn in a different context.
A real strength of St Giles and St George’s is the staff. From the hard working office staff who are a major link between home and school to the cleaning, site and catering staff and the teaching team. Teachers work incredibly hard crafting lessons with the needs of the children central to their planning. They are responsible for driving the learning forward and enabling children to achieve their potential.
We have strong link with both of our local parishes, St Giles and St George’s, clergy and parishioners work with the children in school and the children spend time working within each parish to support and enhance their spiritual life.
Parents are encouraged to engage with school through Shine mornings, workshops, school events, concerts and parent’s Forum. Every day counts…Every minute matters, is a maxim that we hold dear at St Giles’ and St Georges’s. With Gospel values at our heart, we support children’s acquisition of basic skills to enable them to develop high aspirations and a life long love of learning.
It is a privilege to be head teacher at a school where rooted in Gospel value everyone combines to produce an active and exciting place to be, somewhere that children feel nurtured and supported to be the best they can be.
