Results & destinations
From the first day a student enters the sixth form at Giggleswick we support, inform and guide them on all options available to them beyond school including UCAS, CUKAS, Art Foundation, school leaver programmes, studying abroad at both American and European universities, gap years and apprenticeships.
Pupils can select their own personal tutor to help support them throughout their journey. All pupils take part in a dedicated Careers Week aimed at informing them of the options available. They will also receive guidance on how to write an effective CV, embark on a number of formal interviews and listen to representatives from universities, gap year providers, school leaver programmes and apprenticeships. Throughout the year, all sixth formers take part in a weekly lecture programme, which gives them the opportunity to hear from a diverse range of speakers.

Sam Hart, Headmaster, said:
“I am pleased with the results which reflect considerable hard work and determination. Across the cohort, pupils have secured excellent offers. Whether it be Cambridge, leading Russell Group universities, degree apprenticeships or apprenticeships, they are heading off to exciting futures. I am particularly delighted that Eleanor and Jemimah have secured their Cambridge offers to read medicine and classics – a very fine achievement against strong competition. However, there is much to celebrate across the board for a year group that sat their first ever set of public exams this year. I have been impressed by their resilience, ambition and desire to follow their interests beyond Giggleswick.”
