Our Vision

Giles Academy aims to provide the very best possible educational experience for every one of its students.

We all work hard to provide this through:

  • a wide range of opportunities for students to learn in a safe, supportive, creative, happy environment
  • having the very highest expectations of the entire school community in everything that we do
  • working together with others inside and outside the school to meet our aims

In addition to academic success, we also place extremely high value on the development of character; responsibility, ambition, honesty, confidence, compassion and courage.


Year 8 students will complete their Key Stage 3 courses in May and will move onto Key Stage 4 courses in June of Year 9.  To help students prepare for this change, your child will be making their choices for their Key Stage 4 courses over the coming weeks.  To read more information about subject choices and access the online Preliminary Options form please click here.

Sixth Form applications are now being taken.  Click here to download an application form or visit our Sixth Form web page.  Deadline is 31 January 2018.  Any enquiries, please contact areed@gilesacademy.co.uk.

Vacancies are available in singing, piano, flute, clarinet and saxophone.  Please fill in the attached letter if your child is interested in having instrument/singing lessons and return to school or email the form to kbelcher@gilesacademy.co.uk.
