Houses

The House system is at the heart of Giggleswick life.  Each House is a family-friendly home from home - somewhere to relax with friends as well as work.

We have seven Houses, including a Junior House (Catteral) for boys and girls in Years 7 and 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 to House to support the academic progress of each child.
