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.
