We have high expectations that allow children to progress fully throughout their primary education. If you can’t make it we’d love to show you around. Phone school, on 01629 56813, to arrange a time to visit us.”
At St Giles they teach an inspiring National Curriculum which enables the children to Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express.

A new addition to this academic year is that every child at St Giles attends Forest Craft in the schools wonderful grounds.
