"How can they bear to tear themselves away from this happy place in the Yorkshire Dales?"
"Children are simply encouraged to have a go here. They take a child out of their comfort zone but there is lots of encouragement and togetherness. No one is singled out."
“We originally chose Giggleswick for its friendly, family atmosphere. Throughout the Senior School we've found this strong sense of community retained. It comes across every time we visit the school and in the many friendships the pupils make.”
Parent of Imogen (Year 12)
“I was really pleased with my results and the experience I had. Studying at Gigg gave me so much independence and responsibility which made me stand out in my applications to university and particularly during the interview process. Gigg did a brilliant job in preparing me for the next stage of my life.”
Tom (Old Giggleswickian)
