Overview

Every year we welcome GCSE and A level students from across the UK and overseas to join us during the Easter holidays for our well respected series of revision courses. Our structured programme of supported study, highly qualified team of teaching staff and first class teaching facilities all make Giggleswick the perfect place to prepare for exams.

 

A choice of one, two and three-day GCSE and A level courses are available for students to make significant progress in their studies and prepare for their exams. Our main aim is to build knowledge and confidence. As well as providing useful revision on key areas of the curriculum and plenty of examination practice through past papers, we seek to improve technique and help students work towards better quality answers.

 

All courses are taught in small groups by a team of highly qualified and experienced teachers, many of whom are GCSE and A level examiners, and all of whom teach a wide range of academic ability in their specialist subjects on a daily basis. 

 

Day and residential options are available.
