International Summer School

Set in the stunning location of the Yorkshire Dales, Giggleswick is the ideal place for international students to improve their English, have fun, make friends and experience life at one of the UK's leading boarding schools. It's a perfect English summer adventure for children worldwide. 


Every summer we welcome boys and girls (aged 7 to 16) from around the world to our highly acclaimed International Summer School. Each student enjoys a personally tailored programme, including high quality intensive English teaching every morning followed by an action-packed afternoon of activities, sports and cultural trips in the afternoon, and a full social programme in the evening.

Junior and Senior programmes

We run a Junior programme for 7 to 10 year olds and a Senior programme for 11 to 16 year olds, carefully tailoring each course to suit the interests and abilities of each child. English tuition is in small classes of similar ability.

Mix with English students

We also combine our International Summer School with our UK Summer Courses programme, which provides the opportunity for our international students to mix and make friends with English children and practice their new language skills.

Great location and easy access

Giggleswick is located in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park, just over an hour from Manchester International Airport and Leeds Bradford Airport. We arrange pick up and drop off and an organised welcome at both airports.

The whole camp is excellent! I won’t say goodbye just see you next summer!
