About Lancaster Girls' Grammar School

Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School is a forward looking, selective state school with academy status and an outstanding record of promoting high achievement. Our results and the progress made by our students regularly places us as a leading state school not only locally but nationally.  However, we also place great emphasis on the development of the "whole person". A key priority for us continues to be to support all aspects of development not just educational success, important as this is. Young women need to be healthy, happy and have the skills to deal with life’s challenges if they are to enjoy life and make a positive contribution.  We firmly believe that the context of a girls’ school allows our students to feel safe to assert their opinions and have a high level of self-respect, as well as achieve academic success.  We currently have around nine hundred students on roll including 305 Sixth Formers. Almost all of our Year 11 continue their A-level studies at LGGS and we welcome students new to LGGS into our Sixth Form. The School is heavily over-subscribed for entrance into Year 7 and has recently increased to five form entry (140 pupils)  Parents particularly value the way in which we are able to maintain high academic standards and still provide and encourage a full range of extra-curricular activities to enable students to become mature, confident adults.
