A typical day at Giggleswick (Seniors)

Each day is different but a normal weekday consists of English language tuition in the mornings, a choice of Educational Workshops before lunch, a choice of sporting, adventurous and cultural activities in the afternoons, and a full evening social programme. By combining our International Summer School with our UK Summer Courses programme, our international pupils are given a unique opportunity to mix and make friends with English children, which further develops their conversational English language skills.
