A very special school is this summer celebrating its 40th anniversary of being based on Pampisford Road, South Croydon.
St Giles, Croydon’s Special School of the Year, is full of amazing children and dedicated staff. All of the pupils attending St Giles have complex physical and medical needs. At the school, they flourish in the highly specialist environment, with education and health professionals working closely together so that every child can “Be the best they can be”.
First opened in 1925, this year St Giles School is celebrating 40 years at its present site and they are planning two very special events to mark the anniversary.
On Friday May 19 they will be inviting members of staff and pupils from the past 40 years to join them and there will also be an opportunity for members of the public to look around the school, and, says the head teacher, Virginia Marshall, “to meet some of the wonderful children and see how much we have changed over the years”.
On Friday June 30, pupils, staff and parents will be celebrating a 1970s Day with dressing up, sports and dancing.
“We would love you to join us for one of these events. It would be such a fantastic boost to both the children, their parents and carers and our staff.”
