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 come for an individual visit and join us at an Open Day. We believe this is the best way to get a real feel for the School; our stunning setting, first class facilities and kind and caring community. If you are unable to join us in person, a Skype interview with a senior member of staff can be arranged.

4. Register a place

Following your visit to Giggleswick, the first step is to complete and return a Registration Form, accompanied by a £165 registration fee.

3. Taster day

After registering a place for your child, you may want to arrange a taster day for your child. If you would like to book a taster, then please contact our Admissions Team.

5. Entrance tests, scholarship assessments & reports

Entrance tests are taken in English, Maths, and non-verbal reasoning. There will also be an interview with the Headmaster. We ask for children to be registered with us by the end of the Autumn Term and entrance tests will be held at the start of the Spring Term. We require school reports and we will request a reference from the child's current school.

For entry into Year 7 and Year 9, we offer a variety of scholarships. Please visit our scholarships pages to find out more.


6. Place offered

As soon as all reports, tests and interviews have been completed and reviewed by the Headmaster, an offer of a place can be made. 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. Visit our fees page to find out more.
