St Giles School is a Voluntary Controlled Church in Wales Primary School that opened on the 1st September 2007. It is a co-educational day school catering for children aged between 4-11 years of age. Although a new school, as a result of the amalgamation of St Giles Infant and Junior Schools, there has been a school on this site since 1885.
The present Infant and Junior Departments were re-modelled between 1986-1990 and provide flexible and modern accommodation in attractive traditional stone buildings. The school has good size classrooms some with interactive whiteboards, art and craft resource areas, libraries, computer suite and school halls.
The campus consists of outside amenities such as a playground with quiet seated areas, open spaces for games and a canopy for shelter and also a field for use at breaktimes and during P.E. lessons.
The school is conveniently situated near the centre of Wrexham and serves mainly the districts of Hightown, Smithfield, Penybryn, Erddig and parts of Caia Park.
St Giles can offer playgroup plus and before and after school care. This is provided by a team of extremely experienced staff and takes place in the Infant Department. The clubs are very well resourced and provide a wide range of activities for all who attend.
At St Giles we aim to provide a pleasant, stimulating and secure environment where children are encouraged to develop as individuals acquiring skills both socially and academically in order to reach their full potential. We set this development in the context of understanding the unique heritage and culture of Wales and recognise the need to be global citizens who care for our world.
