St Giles’ was nominated by the council’s education department, who praised the rich and varied curriculum provided to the pupils at the school on Pampisford Road in South Croydon.
St Giles’ is a local authority maintained community school for pupils aged from 4 to 19.
The profile of St Giles has changed over recent years, with more pupils with profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) and very complex needs. The school has met the resulting challenges by adapting the environment to support access and care, training staff and curriculum-planning to support appropriate teaching and learning opportunities.
