Schools Links

St Giles is part of the Valley Teaching Alliance and works with a group of local mainstream primary and secondary schools to share and develop good practice.

St Giles has a number of well-established links with Primary and Secondary schools in Croydon.  Pupils from the school take part in events and activities specially planned to promote inclusion and raise self-esteem for all pupils involved.  We are keen to promote disability awareness and challenge perceptions.

Events this year have included:

  • Green class singing in the Primary Choir at Fairfield Halls with hundreds of mainstream pupils
  • The Brit School working with secondary pupils to prepare for their summer show
  • Inclusion sessions at Regina Coeli for a Year 1 pupil
  • John Fisher students helping with sports day
  • Pupils from Riddlesdown, St Giles and Priory working together to represent Croydon in the Panathlon competition
  • Pupils from Chipstead Valley invited to the primary Bollywood day

Dear Parents/Carers,

We are thrilled to announce that, once again, we have been awarded the Croydon Special Schools Award 2018 for our commitment to high quality education and supporting pupils with complex needs throughout Croydon. A huge thank you to all the staff for doing an amazing job for our children.

Friday 30th November sees the beginning of Christmas at St Giles. The children will decorate the Christmas tree and John Fisher School boys choir will be here once again to sing carols to pupils and staff. In the evening we will be welcoming former pupils to our annual Old Scholars Christmas party.

A very happy festive season to you all.
