Co-curriculum

The most distinctive aspect of a Giggleswick education is its focus on personal development and participation. The school is exceptionally good at discovering and developing an individual’s strengths, and, with a breadth of educational opportunities, nurturing the whole person.

The CAS programme

The CAS programme is our focus for co-curricular provision at Giggleswick. It is shaped around a balanced programme of creative, active, and service components. 

What makes Giggleswick unique is that these activities are timetabled into the school day that allows pupils to undertake all three strands, which not only develops a variety of strengths, but contributes to a pupil’s wellbeing too. 

Creative

Appreciation of the arts through exposure to music, drama and other experiences that involve creative thinking and application.

“I’d best describe Gigg as a diving board, taking you head-first into experiences you never thought about trying. No matter what you want to do, Giggleswick will try to provide for all. This is what I am grateful for, that in a relatively short amount of time here, I’ve managed to experience and achieve so much, whilst still feeling I’ve only just scratched the surface of what Gigg has to offer.”

Duncan, Leaver (2022)

Active

Physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle, the experience of being part of a team or recreational activity.  

Service

Contribution to the wider community and support of the environment.
