Virtual School

Greetings from the ever beautiful Yorkshire Dales and welcome to the Giggleswick Virtual School. Being unable to access our fantastic campus and facilities is not a barrier to enjoying the Giggleswick learning experience. Our approach to learning combines high quality online lessons with full wellbeing support, academic enrichment programmes and a wide-ranging CAS (Creative, Active, Service) Programme.

Learning from home does not mean learning in isolation, and our teachers are  on hand throughout to guide pupils  with live teaching whilst also providing daily wellbeing support. Our aim is to ensure that we continue to develop the Giggleswick learner wherever our pupils may be, through a range of enrichment activities inside and outside of the Virtual School. At times of great uncertainty feeling a part of the wider Giggleswick community is a great support to us all. 


All year groups continue to follow planned schemes of work with no loss of learning. Our teachers live stream every lesson throughout the day with recordings available to help our students that are in different time zones around the world.
