I am incredibly proud to say that St Giles Academy has been placed in the top twenty schools in Lincoln (11th place actually). This is such an incredible achievement in such a short space of time and one that the whole team is shouting about. Our children, families, staff and the community have all contributed to the school’s successes and these will certainly continue. In fact only last week we had a trained Ofsted inspector looking around the school who said that the behavior, lessons and children were outstanding! WOW – what a fantastic comment to say about St Giles Academy.
St. Giles Academy – Official Opening
On 16th April 2015, we had our OFFICIAL OPENING!
St. Giles Red Nose Day!
On Friday the 13th of March we had an amazing day! The children came to school wearing all sorts of weird and wonderful things. There were clowns, people wearing their clothes backwards, pants on heads and so many bright colours! Our morning assembly was all about the reason we have Red Nose Day and Comic Relief, some of the things we learned from it were staggering. Did you know you can supply a child with school books for a year for £1? Or school lunches for a year with £15?
Some of the children from Foundation decorated the adults to make them look a bit more exciting…
After break Year 5 took over the playground with their game stalls. There was sponge throwing, watermelons on heads, Spongebob Squarepants, a racetrack, a penalty shootout, an obstacle race and lots of other things! The entire school was invited and the Year 5’s were absolutely brilliant. They looked after the younger children, kept scores and made sure everyone enjoyed it all.
At lunch the Great St Giles Bake-Off and the Best Red Nose competitions were judged. Our afternoon assembly was very busy! We had…
The Bake-off winners!
Red Nose Racer heats and finals!
Best Red Nose Competition Awards!
And the total raised…so far….

St. Giles World Book Day!
A huge thank you to everyone who took part in World Book Day this year; it was a great success! All the costumes were amazing and Mrs Scott and Miss Dale had a very tricky job choosing the winners of our “most imaginative costume” competition.
As well as looking great the children had fun taking part in some special book activities such as drawing their character, reading to the youngest children and making their very own books. I hope all the children have been able to use their special £1 book token to get themselves a new book to enjoy and share with their friends.
Keep reading St Giles!
KS1 Rainbows Fundraiser and Exhibition
On Wednesday 25th March at 2pm, Year 1 and 2 would like to invite parents/carers to their fundraising exhibition. Proceeds will be donated to the Rainbows Hospice.
There will be hand-made crafts, biscuits, a tombola, refreshments, stalls and games. Donations of small change will help us to fill a rainbow in the heart.
We will also be sharing our work with you from this term, answering the question, ‘What Makes a Hero?’
Thank you for your continued support, we look forward to seeing you there,
From the children and staff in KS1.
What a lovely message from a member of the public who met 2 of our pupils at their book launch!
“I was lucky enough to be ‘caught’ by two of your pupils in Lincoln this week and what fantastic children they were. I know that they wanted to sell me their book but they were so knowledgeable and engaging that I wanted you to know that Paige and Leah really impressed me. I worked with senior school children in Southampton ten years ago and would have been proud if they had been my pupils. Well done St Giles I hope you go from strength to strength!”
Year 6 Poetry Readings
On the 18th November, over 100 people turned up to hear us read our WW1 poetry at Costa! Please click on the links below to watch some of our year 6 children read their poems.
Lest We Forget
On 11.11.14 – St Giles Academy remembered. To mark this special occasion, the children learned and performed a song. This video is a live recording of the song. Unfortunately, the wind distorts the sound towards the end. However, we hope that it is a reminder to all that were present, what a special occasion it was!
A huge thank you to all parents and pupils who made donations and made our Harvest Celebration so very special!
We are in the paper!
This week, as we celebrated the official opening of our school, we made the newspaper!
