Head PhotoGiggleswick Junior School is the co-educational, day and boarding junior school for Giggleswick School. It is located in beautiful Dales scenery approximately one hour from Manchester, Leeds and the Lake District.

The Junior School is self-contained within the grounds of Giggleswick School and has a full range of facilities. It has its own teaching staff and matrons, but shares some of the staff and many of the amenities of the Senior School, including Chapel, Design Centre, Astroturf pitch, dining hall, Music School and swimming pool. Music and drama form an integral part of school life and are seen as strengths of the school, as does a participation in all major boys' and girls' team games, as well as many individual sports. Hobbies are encouraged, and use is made of the open and unspoiled countryside around the School. Outdoor pursuits is an important part of the curriculum. Recent improvements include a new Music School, Science Laboratories, and playing fields with sports facilities, and a complete new Study Centre.

The majority of boys and girls move on to Giggleswick School at age 11.

The Head, Mr Mark Brotherton, and his family live on site and the Junior Boarding Housemaster, Mr Andrew Pickles and his family are resident in the boarding house. All staff are involved in the pastoral care of the pupils. Every child has a Personal Tutor who is responsible for their academic and social welfare. Health is looked after by the School Doctor, who makes regular visits, and the Sister in the Medical Centre, who is a State Registered Nurse. There is a conscious effort to promote a happy family atmosphere in a caring environment. The school's Christian ethos is seen as fundamental to this atmosphere.

The Head is always delighted to welcome interested parents to see the school at work and at play.
