Lancaster Royal Grammar School has been ranked the top state school for boys in the North West and 47th nationally, based on academic success, by The Sunday Times this week.
The Sunday Times Parent Power list, published on Sunday 27 November, contains the top 2,000 state and independent schools, ranked by their latest GCSE and A-level results.
LRGS achieved record breaking results this year with 81% of A-level students receiving A*- B grades and 63% of GSCE grades were A*-A.
Headmaster Dr Chris Pyle said: “We are delighted to see that we have risen up the rankings this year. To move from the top 100 into the top 50 schools in the country is a very impressive achievement. Exceptional teaching and pastoral care is at the heart of this success. Well done to every single one of our students who worked hard to achieve these outstanding results.”
As well as assessment of all academic results on a school-by-school basis, Parent Power enables parents to compare the performance of a given school with other schools in the same town, local authority or nationally.
Parent Power is widely acknowledged as the most authoritative survey of the country’s best schools.
