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 and Year 7 Bronze Arts Award student spent all day on Friday 10 November building lanterns in the shape of boats for the Boston Illuminate procession that takes place on Thursday 23 November. The students worked with Transported artists Ruth and Nadia, and another Transported artist called Lauren Sharpe. Lauren is an ex-pupil of the Giles who left over 4 years ago to study Fine Art at Lincoln University. The workshop was excellent and we hope that many people will come and support our students at the event next week.

Charter of the Forest Art Exhibition at the Chapter House in Lincoln Cathedral
The Giles Art department Charter of the Forest exhibition at the Chapter House of Lincoln Cathedral has come to an end. The exhibition coincided with the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Charter of the Forest and formed part of the Cathedrals celebrations to mark this anniversary. It was a great privilege for our school to exhibit in such a prestigious place, and the exhibition has been warmly received and seen by hundreds of people. The display coincided with the Remembrance weekend, one of the busiest for the Cathedral. On Saturday a choral concert took place in the Chapter House, with many people experiencing this concert and also looking at our art exhibition!
The comment book contains many wonderful comments about the art work, and the commitment of our students.
