Lancaster Royal
Grammar School



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 10-15 each year to Oxford and Cambridge.  Around 40% of GCSE entries achieve one of the top two grades, 9 or 8 and 70% achieve one of the top three grades, 9 to7.

We are consistently placed in the top 2% of UK state schools at GCSE and A-level.
