Lancaster Royal Grammar School is consistently placed among the top state schools in the country and is one of the leading state boarding schools in the UK. The high standard of achievement of our pupils and the inspirational teaching by our staff mean that our A-level and GCSE results are exceptionally high.
Three-quarters of our A-level results are regularly A* - B grade and the vast majority of our leavers go on to their first choice university, many of them to the most competitive institutions, including 10-12% each year to Oxford and Cambridge. Around 70% of GCSE entries achieve one of the top two grades, A* or A.
We are consistently placed in the top 2% of UK state schools at GCSE and A-level.

Headmaster Dr Chris Pyle said: “Well done to every single one of our Sixth Formers on an excellent set of results. These results are the product of high expectations, outstanding teaching and a great deal of hard work. It is particularly impressive that LRGS students achieve such outstanding academic results alongside their enthusiasm for sport, music, drama, outdoor pursuits, charity volunteering and much more besides. I am delighted to be able to congratulate them as they go on to further study on a wide range of highly competitive courses or to high-quality apprenticeships across the UK and beyond.”
