Lancaster Royal Grammar School

Established in the 13th century, we are one of the UK’s top grammar schools for boys aged 11 to 18 with a Co-educational Sixth Form welcoming girls and boys into boarding.

“Outstanding for boarding.” Ofsted

LRGS is a successful, modern, state boarding school. We are particularly proud of the warmth of the relationships between pupils and staff and of the quality of our pastoral care.


The atmosphere at LRGS is vibrant, inspiring – and fun! Our students go on to the most competitive universities, including around 15 annually to Oxbridge.

We have excellent travel links; Lancaster is under 2½ hours by train from London and we are on a direct train line from Manchester airport. “Besides academic progress, skills and interests are nurtured and developed which adds to the confidence of pupils.

Boys and parents are very proud of the school and parents comment that their sons are thriving academically and relishing boarding life.” - Good School Guide

As well as encouraging pupils to reach their academic potential we provide opportunities for them to develop their sporting, cultural, artistic and musical talents to the full. We offer exceptional value; our boarding fees are about a third of those payable at independent schools so we are an outstanding alternative.
