About Us

Welcome from the Principal

I am very proud to welcome you to St Giles Academy’s website. We are an inclusive, supportive and caring school and we aim to do the very best for all children in our care.

We aim to deliver a high quality teaching and learning experience for our pupils, which will prepare them well for secondary school and beyond. Our new vision, which was launched in April 2021, is shared with the other academies of Harbour Learning Trust. We want to inspire the pupils, help them learn key academic concepts and life skills so that they can live happy, safe successful lives. You will find more information about our new school vision and values under the Key Information tab.

At St Giles Academy, we focus on the core skills of reading, writing and maths through a broad and balanced curriculum that both inspires and engages the pupils. St Giles is a safe place to make mistakes and we promote a ‘have a go’ culture where children develop the confidence to challenge themselves as learners.

Decisions are always made with our children’s best interests in mind. For them to feel safe and secure; enjoy coming to school, is our number one priority.

This is an exciting time for the school. We joined the Harbour Learning Trust in November 2018 and with the support of all the stakeholders, St Giles Academy has a bright future ahead.

This wonderful, new and improved website shows important information relating to the school for parents/carers, pupils and the wider community. It also directs you to other sites that may be useful. Pictures and information about the children’s learning experiences can be found on the class pages.

Our Digital Newsletter, which started in April 2021, is a wonderful way of showcasing what is happening in the academy. The weekly Digital Newsletter is located under the News and Events and Latest News tabs.

We extend a warm and friendly welcome to all who come to St Giles Academy, in whatever capacity.

Many thanks
Mrs E Hunt, Principal
