Giggleswick is a genuine boarding school in the North of England, with around 60% of pupils attending as full boarders. All boarders live in one of our seven boarding Houses, where they are looked after by a team of House Staff. A Housemaster or Housemistress, appointed by the Headmaster, supervises each house and is responsible for the academic and personal progress and general welfare of all the pupils in the House within a caring, disciplined framework. In addition, there is a team of Tutors attached to each House and, among the senior pupils, are a Head of House and other House Seniors who help the Senior House Staff in discharging the day-to-day duties involved in a boarding community.
