Update: The road outside the school is one way all this week (from Pen-y-Bryn towards the school).
Every effort will be made to open the school as normal during bad/poor weather. However, we have to ensure that there are safe routes around the school.
Remember that should the weather deteriorate, information regarding any school closure will be placed here on this website, and also on the Council’s Website at
As a parent/carer it is your decision on whether it is appropriate/safe to make the journey to school – if school is open.
Please refrain from phoning school – as we will be unable to answer all calls – just check the website. If you don’t have access to the Internet then please arrange to phone a friend who does.
If the weather deteriorates during the day then once again we will place any closure on here and on the Council Website. We will also phone parents to notify of any early closure. Staff will remain on the premises as long as possible – up to the end of the school day – to ensure that all children are collected safely.
Breakfast/After School Club will not operate if the weather deteriorates.
St Giles' School
St Giles Primary 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 also 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.
