• LRGS Sixth Form Open Evening

Sixth Form Open Evening Marks the Start of a New Era

Parents and prospective students are welcome to come and experience what makes Lancaster Royal Grammar School Sixth Form such a unique, supportive and vibrant place to learn, both in and out of the classroom.

The Sixth Form Open Evening takes place on Wednesday 17 October at 5.30pm.

Headmaster Dr Chris Pyle said: “It is a great time to join LRGS Sixth Form as we welcome girls as well as boys for the first time. September 2019 is an opportunity for you to make history with us.”

Sarah Haigh, Head of Sixth Form said: “September 2019 marks the beginning of an exciting new era for LRGS. Not only are we looking forward to welcoming girls to join our thriving Sixth Form, we’re also excited about settling in to our new home in the refurbished Sixth Form Centre.”

Major improvements are currently underway to ensure that LRGS provides the best facilities possible for students. The £1.9m refurbishment of the school’s oldest building Old School House will see former dormitories transformed into state-of-the art study spaces and a top floor café.

Lancaster Royal Grammar School is consistently placed among the top state schools in the country. In 2018, A-level students achieved top A and A* grades in more than 51% of all the exams that they sat. 

The Open Evening will provide visitors with an opportunity to look around the school classrooms and meet the teachers. There are more than 20 A-level courses to choose from and there will be plenty of people around to offer advice on subject combinations and future implications. Sixth Form guides will be on hand for you to quiz as you move around the school. Please read our Sixth Form Prospectus to find out more.

There will be scheduled talks from Sarah Haigh, Head of Sixth Form, Headmaster, Dr Pyle and some current Sixth Form pupils.  Please come along and find out more about boarding opportunities, bursaries, transition, careers, the Extended Project Qualification and the extracurricular activities that are on offer.
