Exams are important, so is loving what you do. At Giggleswick, the extended day and boarding ethos gives all pupils the time and opportunity to participate in any of over 60 clubs and activities throughout the week and weekends too. We know that happy students make successful learners and that's why we focus on the individual and their passions to inspire their learning and achievements.


We encourage ambition and achievement of every kind, whether it's in the classroom, in sport or in artistic expression. Success is not just about grades and academic skills. We put an equal emphasis on personal development, helping young people to build confidence and independence, to take responsibility and initiative, and learn important communication, team work and leadership skills.


From sports clubs to drama groups and outdoor pursuits, we run a daily programme of exciting, engaging co-curricular activities that encourage our pupils to explore new horizons, challenge themselves and often achieve far beyond their expectations.
