Giggleswick School

Co-educational Prep and Senior School
"How can they bear to tear themselves away from this happy place in the Yorkshire Dales.”
Tatler Schools Guide 2014 

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

The Senior and Junior schools are on the same site providing a seamless and stable boarding education from 9 to 18 years. As a genuine boarding school with 62% of pupils boarding, we have a full school day on Saturday, with lessons in the morning and sport in the afternoon. A structured programme of activities is also in place for boarders on Saturday evenings and Sundays.

Academic results are strong with 60% of Year 13 students gaining Russell Group University offers and many achieving Oxbridge interviews. Our academic programme is complemented by a wide range of co-curricular activities, from sport and outdoor pursuits to music, art, drama, debating, and service in the community.

We welcome international pupils from over 17 different countries, including expatriate and Forces families. Of our total pupil body, 81% are British and 19% are internationals.

We also operate an extremely popular International Summer School programme, providing international students with an ideal opportunity to improve their English, have fun, make friends, and get a taste for British life at a top UK boarding school.

We are listed as a ‘Top 20 Independent School in the North’ by The Sunday Times.
