In-year Entry to LGGS

Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School is popular and usually oversubscribed.  This means that the School is normally full in all year groups although, occasionally, space will arise due to family relocation or change of school. If you would like to make an application you are welcome to do so. However, please ensure that if you are looking to move schools you have talked to your current school. If a school move is not absolutely essential, you should carefully consider the implications for your child.

If your child is unhappy in their current school for whatever reason, you should first contact the Headteacher and discuss the problems before changing schools. School transfer can be very disruptive for any child and it is not encouraged if the problem can be resolved by the school. 

More advice about in year admissions can be found below.

All applicants are expected to sit admission tests to assess suitability. The In-Year Registration Form for the tests is available to download below:
In-year Admission Registration Form
Please post the completed form directly to the school. 

Registration will close prior to the tests.

Spring - 2024 20th February 2024
Summer - 2024 25th June 2024

Autumn dates are not applicable to Year 7 (2023 or 2024 intake) as the LGGS Year 7 Waiting List remains in place until 31st December for the relevant year. 

The tests seek to establish whether the applicant can sustain the pace of the school's classroom education and has sufficient knowledge and understanding to undertake the relevant year group's existing programmes of study. If you register in the autumn for a Year 7 test, (not previously tested at LGGS), the tests will likely be CAT4  (Cognitive Abilities Tests), otherwise our In Year admissions tests are in English and Mathematics. English is a response to prose fiction and an extended writing task. The Mathematics tests contain both calculator and non-calculator questions. It is based on the curriculum followed at LGGS for the relevant year group.

There is one testing opportunity for a year group - tests are usually 12 months apart.

It is likely that any suitable applicants will need to appeal. Please see the appeal information section on our website for further details. Appeal forms are available from the school. The last day for lodging appeal forms, following a refusal for a place mid-term, is 20 school days upon receipt of your letter of refusal.
