School Profile

Founded in 1512, Giggleswick School is one of the UK’s leading co-educational schools, located in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park, just over an hour away from Manchester and Leeds airports.

Day pupils, flexi boarders and full boarders all share a close sense of community with the House system forming a central hub of life. 67% of pupils board and we provide an extended school day for all pupils and a full school day on Saturday, with lessons in the morning and sport or clubs in the afternoon. Children participate in over 80 clubs and societies meeting every week and compete in more than 400 sports fixtures each year.

Our academic standards are high across a broad curriculum and pupils are stretched without being stressed, to achieve their potential and personal best. At GCSE 48% of grades were 7-9 (A*A equivalent). At A Level, 73% of grades were A* to B with 73% of pupils receiving offers to Russell Group/1994 universities and taking up places at leading specialist schools including the Royal Northern College of Music. Pupils also received exceptional results in their EPQs with over 75% achieving an A/A* grade.
