St Mary & St Giles Church School

SMSG School2

St. Mary & St. Giles School is the oldest school in Milton Keynes, having been bequeathed by Michael Hipwell in 1611.  Since that date it has served the children of Stony Stratford in many guises, and on many sites.  Back in 1937 it opened on a new site in King George Crescent as a secondary school – but now serves children aged from 7 to 11 (National Curriculum Years 3 to 6) with modern facilities and ample space.  It was a Voluntary Aided Church School.

SMSG merged with Queen Eleanor School in 2017 to become one school over two sites (Stony Stratford and Galley Hill) – now called St Mary and St Giles Church of England School. The land and buildings at both sites are owned by the Trustees Registered charity 310529. It became an Academy in 2021 when the Inspiring Futures through Learning multi Academy Trust (IfTL) took over the school. IfTL are based at Fairfields School.

The school teaches a broad curriculum where the music, art and sport are valued alongside academic success in English, Mathematics and Science.  The school has space for 369 children. Nursery, Reception, Years 1 and 2 are all based at the Galley Hill site, with Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 at both sites.

You would be welcome to come and see the school for yourself.
