Academic Results

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.

2016 A-level results

LRGS Sixth Form students celebrated the school’s best ever A-level results this year.  

Students achieved A*, A or B grades in over 81% of all exams which they sat – the highest total ever achieved by the school. 

Well over half of all subject entries for the 151 Upper Sixth students were awarded A or A* grades (56%), and almost a quarter of all subject entries received the top A* grade (23%). 

Headmaster Dr Chris Pyle said, “I am delighted to be able to congratulate our students and teachers on these excellent results.  They are just rewards for our students’ hard work and determination, and reflect the outstanding teaching which is the hallmark of the school.” 

“It is excellent to see student success across the whole range of the curriculum:  arts, technology, humanities, languages, sciences and mathematics.” 

“I am delighted that the great majority of our students have achieved places on their first choice of very competitive university courses and high quality business apprenticeships.  Very many congratulations to every single one of our Sixth Form students on their achievements.”
