Boarding and House life is central to the ethos at Giggleswick with over 64% of pupils attending as full or flexi boarders, increasing to 79% in Sixth Form. Our seven Houses provide a warm and welcoming home away from home for all our pupils with a strong family feel across the whole school.
We have seven Houses, including a Junior House (Catteral) for boys and girls in Years 4 to 8, two large girls' Houses (Carr and Style) and four smaller senior boys' Houses (Morrison, Nowell, Paley and Shute). Each House has a well-balanced mixture of day, flexi and full boarders. Day pupils have their own desk and work space in the House alongside the boarders.
Each House has a Housemaster or Housemistress who supervises all aspects of House life within a caring, disciplined framework, and a Matron responsible for the day-to-day welfare and health of the children. There is also a (live-in) Resident Tutor and a team of teaching staff allocated to each House to support the academic progress of each child.
