St Giles Specialist School for Physical & Sensory Needs is based in Croydon. The school caters for children with a wide spectrum of  physical needs from wheelchair users to children who are very mobile.  Their existing sports area had become worn and didn’t include a boccia court. Boccia was made very popular by the London Paralympics and the school recently sent a team to the London Youth Games Boccia.
