“We discovered this morning that the school has been victim of an aggressive computer virus which had caused some damage to the school network. We took immediate action to minimise the risk of further damage and the school’s network team have been working throughout the day to put in place the necessary steps to rectify this. Due to the nature of this infection it may take some time to restore all of our IT systems fully. I ask that parents/carers and students remain patient with us during this process. Please rest assured that this will be done as quickly as possible and that teaching staff will adjust their lessons accordingly.
Welcome to Giles Academy
Giles Academy is a popular, non-selective secondary school for students aged 11-19 situated in Old Leake, a small rural village to the north of Boston. Students travel to the school from a very wide area.
The school has a large site with dedicated areas for each subject, including science laboratories, arts studios and gallery
spaces, technology workshops, computer suites and our own 25m swimming pool – to name just a few.
We aim to provide the very best possible educational experience for every single one of our 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. This is done via a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities
including sports, performing arts as well as many others. We are committed to the benefits which can be gained from outdoor education. All students work towards the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
Ian Widdows, Headteacher
