Charitable Work

The school is involved in a number of charity events over the course of the year.  We raise money for several charities through non-uniform days and special events, and collect items and gifts for chosen charities at Harvest and Christmas time.

The school is a registered charity.  Our charity number is 312197.

Dear Parents and Carers,

November has been another happy, busy month at St Giles. We began the month by welcoming visitors from across Croydon to our Open Morning. Our ‘We Remember’ Assembly later that week, was a beautiful opportunity to remember past students and staff.

Last week, our school council welcomed the Mayor of Croydon, Humayun Kabir, to a meeting. Mr. Mayor answered pupils’ questions about his role and met our five young ambassadors who will be organizing an event next term to support his charities. The month ended with Old Scholars Evening on Friday night. It was lovely to welcome back so many returning friends.

We continue to work hard with parents and Governors to try to improve the situation with parking at the front of the school. The ‘Meet and Greet’ pilot in the morning has now been adopted and we are exploring ways to extend the improvements to the afternoon. Thank you for your feedback on this. We are working with Governors to get advice from Croydon on how to further improve this situation.

As the Autumn Term draws to a close, we are getting ready for our Christmas celebrations. I look forward to seeing many of you at the Middle School Winter Show and the Lower School performance.

Upper School pupils are visiting Bernard Weatherill House in Croydon to sing Carols and we are looking forward to welcoming a choir from John Fisher School for carols at school at the end of the week.

Finally, all the staff at St Giles wish you and your family season’s greetings and a happy new year.

Best wishes,

Kathy Lewis - Headteacher
