Good School Guide 2016

Established in the 13th century, we are one of the UK's top grammar schools for boys 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.

There are 1000 pupils at the school, including 170 boarders and a thriving Sixth Form of 350 students. As well as encouraging boys 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 around 15 each year to Oxford and Cambridge. We also enjoy a national reputation for sporting excellence.

Where are we?
Located in the historic city of Lancaster we have excellent travel links. We are 2½ hours by train from London, on a direct train route to Manchester airport and 3 miles from the M6.
