Good School Guide 2016
Established in the 13th century, we are one of the UK's top grammar schools for boys with a coeducational sixth form and as a state school, education is free for all pupils. We are a successful, modern, state boarding school. Rated as 'outstanding' across all categories by Ofsted, boarding at Lancaster Royal Grammar School costs about a third of the fees payable at independent schools; we believe we are an outstanding alternative to the independent sector. We are welcoming sixth form girls into boarding in September 2020.
There are 1151 pupils at the school, including 153 boarders and a thriving Sixth Form of 350 students. As well as encouraging pupils to reach their academic potential we provide opportunities for them to develop their sporting, cultural, artistic and musical talents to the full.
The values central to Lancaster Royal Grammar School are those of academic excellence together with extra-curricular opportunity, within a diverse and tolerant community: these form the best possible foundation for future life.
We are particularly proud of the warmth of the relationships between pupils and staff, and of the quality of our pastoral care. The atmosphere at LRGS is vibrant and inspiring – and fun!
Our pupils achieve outstanding exam results with most of our leavers going on to university, many of them to the most competitive institutions, including up to 15 each year to Oxford and Cambridge. We also enjoy a national reputation for sporting excellence.
