Learning beyond the classroom

Here, learning does not stop at the classroom door and we believe strongly in the benefits of a broad curriculum as well as providing further depth and enrichment through a range of activities, an extensive trips and events calendar, and residential experiences.

Caring community

Our children are encouraged to be respectful of each other, our environment and our community. Our older pupils are all buddies to children in lower years and Pre-school, and there are many roles and responsibilities to provide service to the school. We encourage fundraising and support charitable causes, as well as appreciating the non-material aspects of life.

Where everyone takes part

One of the most distinctive aspects of a Giggleswick education is its focus on participation. We believe that children learn better when they are actively involved and this is a school where they are expected to take part in school events, activities and sports, regardless of their level of ability.
