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.

Duke of Edinburgh Awards Ceremony

Our Duke of Edinburgh presentation ceremony was held last week. Students collected 107 Bronze, 2 Silver and 9 Gold awards. Awards were presented by Mick Hoare, the DofE operations officer for Lincolnshire. The event was attended by staff, students, DofE representative and governors.  Miss Perry received a 13 year long service award. Mr Relton and Miss Cocks received a 5 year long service award. We are proud of every student that took part and our staff who put in the time and effort to make it possible.

Today our Y10 students were given the great opportunity to take part in a 'Medical Mavericks' workshop day.
"All lessons should be like this" -Mr Davison: Head of Giles Futures.

Everyone involved had a fantastic experience. They got to try out a number of hands-on activities that ranged from taking blood (from a fake arm) to key hole surgery.

Very professional delivery from Medical Mavericks, 'The UK’s No1 O.M.G, Jaw Dropping, Careers, STEM & Sport Enrichment Experience for Schools & Colleges'

"The activities were fun and interesting, I understand how blood pressure is taken now. Working with other students to measure our heart rate and printing out the results was great."
-Harley, Y10 student
