Welcome from the headteacher mrs cahalin

Thank you for your interest in Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School. We are a forward-looking, selective state school with academy status and have an outstanding record of promoting high achievement.

Whilst we have achieved Outstanding judgements in our last four Ofsted inspections, we regularly analyse our performance and seek new ways to enhance learning opportunities for our students.

With around 900 students on roll, including 305 in the Sixth Form, we are in a position to offer a wide curriculum; including three languages in Year 7.  The vast majority of our students make very good progress and we use a range of data measures in school to set challenging targets.  Behaviour and attendance are excellent at LGGS and our girls are highly motivated, keen and enthusiastic.

A major strength of our school is our pastoral structure.  Our students are very well supported by Form Tutors, Heads of Key Stage, Learning Mentors and a Well-being Coordinator.  We promote emotional and physical well-being and currently have the best range of sporting opportunities ever on offer at LGGS.  Our Duke of Edinburgh programme, which builds resilience and team work, continues to grow very successfully.  New leadership initiatives in Key Stage 4 encourage pupils to reflect on their own personal qualities and achievements as well as celebrate their individuality and talents.  Other projects in school are designed to improve well-being and develop resilience, teaching our pupils to reflect and learn from setbacks and to always aim high.

Whilst we are confined to a small campus in the centre of the city, we make full use of every available space.  The school has recently benefited from a number of improvements to its facilities including a purpose built Sixth Form Centre.  As an International School we value our links with a range of schools in Europe and further afield.  We currently have links with schools in France, Germany, Japan, Spain, and China.

Our intake into Year 7 has increased to 140.  We are heavily oversubscribed and admission is by an entrance test.  On entry, girls are placed in five forms and are taught in forms for most subjects whilst in Years 7 and 8.  Sixth Form students organise a whole host of events for younger students including the annual Performing Arts and Music Festivals.  Each year, we recruit around fifty new students to Year 12 and almost every student continues into the Sixth Form after Year 11.  Whilst Maths, Biology and Chemistry are the most popular A-levels, Arts, Languages and Humanities subjects are also common choices for our students.

Mrs Jackie Cahalin
