Admissions journey

1. Enquiry

If you would like to find out more about Giggleswick and are interested in your child attending then please do get in touch with us. Our Admissions Team would be delighted to answer any questions you may have.

2. Arrange a visit

Following your initial enquiry or prospectus request, we encourage families to visit us. This really is the best way to get a real feel for the School; its stunning setting, teaching and boarding facilities, and supportive community.

4. Register a place

There are no formal entrance examinations required to join the Prep School. We prefer to meet each child individually and to invite them to spend a day with us to ensure that we are all confident that a Giggleswick education is the right choice for you and your child.

Pupils with specific learning difficulties may be accepted provided that the school is able to offer the level of specialist and general assistance required. There may be a charge for learning support.

If you would like to apply for a place at the Prep School, please complete and return a registration form, accompanied by a £165 registration fee. For international families, please contact our Admissions Team below.

5. Place offered

On acceptance of a place, an entry deposit is required to secure the place. This amount is refunded, minus any accrued sundries, at the end of a pupil's career at Giggleswick. For international families, please contact our Admissions Team below.
