Charity information

Giggleswick School Foundation

Giggleswick School was founded in 1512 for the education of the poor of the parish. Today it is one of England’s oldest independent boarding schools. Giggleswick admitted girls in 1976 and now has experience of co-education for over 40 years.
The Giggleswick Foundation exists to enhance the life of its students through fund-raising for facilities and opportunities that would not be covered by regular fee income.

  • Mission statement

    Giggleswick School was founded in 1512 and is one of England’s oldest independent schools. Committed to co-education, a boarding ethos and inspirational teaching, the School currently provides an exceptional quality of education to 450 pupils aged 3-18.

    The School is large enough to offer a diverse range of academic and extra curricular activities, while remaining small enough to ensure that every pupil has access to a uniquely tailored personal experience.

    The Giggleswick School Foundation

    The Foundation shares the School’s charitable status (Reg. Charity No. 1109826) and exists to support the provision of high quality education at Giggleswick School.

    The Governors are committed to increasing the level of investment in the fabric of the School and the diversity of its pupils.
