About Lancaster Royal Grammar School

Lancaster Royal Grammar School is an exceptional state day and boarding school for boys aged 11-18 with a highly successful coeducational Sixth Form.
The school has around 1260 pupils on roll including 170 boarders. We welcomed Sixth Form girls as day students in 2019 and boarders in 2020, and 100 girls have so far joined the school. Most of our boarders are from northwest England, but a growing number live in London or overseas.
We are a selective grammar school, and most of our pupils join in Year 7. We have six forms of entry, and a significant 16+ intake. Our Sixth Form has grown significantly (currently 395 students) and we are planning for some further growth over the next two years. A smaller number of pupils join other year groups, particularly as boarders.
Our pupils are energetic and ambitious, and it is definitely “cool to succeed” at LRGS! The school aims to provide a well-balanced and rigorous academic education, and our students’ academic record is excellent. Students proceed to a wide range of courses, from Oxford, Cambridge and Imperial College to RADA, Glasgow School of Art and a range of competitive apprenticeships.
A profusion of extra-curricular activities provides an exceptional range of cultural and sporting opportunities, including a full programme of Saturday games fixtures.
The school enjoys an extensive site, and pupils get fit (and occasionally wet) walking between lessons. Several buildings have benefited from successful CIF bids in recent years. We transformed former Victorian building accommodation in our Grade II listed Old School House into new classrooms and an expanded Sixth Form centre in 2019. We completed a science extension in 2018 and added a further laboratory this year. Governors have further ambitious plans for investment in the estate to meet the needs of the growing school.
One of our core aims is to be a school that develops exceptional teaching. New members of staff are assured of help and support from colleagues in this welcoming school. Staff induction and ongoing professional development and career progression are fully supported.
We believe in academic excellence through exceptional teaching. We provide a broad curriculum, promote intellectual curiosity and inspire independence. We wish to continue to drive innovation in all our academic systems, to inspire our students to perform at the highest level. We are also a caring school with excellent pastoral provision, and we aim to shape students with a conscience who are ready to take on the world.
