Welcome

Thank you for your interest in Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School (LGGS).
LGGS is a forward-looking, selective state school with academy status and an outstanding record of promoting high achievement. We currently have just over 1000 students on roll with five form entry into Year 7. We are heavily oversubscribed and admission is by an entrance test.  A high proportion of our Year 11 students continue into the LGGS Sixth Form and we welcome a number of external students into Year 12.

We are proud of our academic reputation. In 2021 we were ranked 39th most successful state school nationally  in the Sunday Times Parent Power table, and the only state school in Lancashire to be in the top 50.

LGGS Performance

We offer a broad academic curriculum with all students studying three Modern Foreign Languages in Year 7. Students must continue with one Modern Foreign Languages at Key Stage 4 as well as three Sciences and a Humanities subject.  Students study 10 GCSEs with practical and creative subjects popular option choices. Music, Drama, Art and Sport are all strengths within LGGS and we enjoy success in these areas. In the Sixth Form Maths, Biology and Chemistry are the most popular A levels, but students have many options including subjects only offered in the Sixth Form such as Psychology and Business Studies.

As important as academic achievement is, we also work hard to prepare our students for success and fulfilment in their futures as resilient, happy and responsible young people who will make a positive contribution to society. The school has a strong community feel and visitors comment positively on our family ethos. Our house system and the strong involvement of sixth formers in the life of the school contribute greatly to this ethos. We have an outward looking approach and strong international links.

We are very proud of our inclusive community. Valuing diversity and promoting equality are important aspects of LGGS life. Supporting students’ emotional health and well-being is a key school priority as is involving students themselves in contributing their views and planning activities. Our students are very well supported by Form Tutors, Heads of Key Stage, Learning Mentors and a Well-being Coordinator, plus a number of school counsellors.  We promote emotional and physical well-being and have a wide range of sporting opportunities. Our Duke of Edinburgh programme, which builds resilience and teamwork, continues to grow very successfully.

I hope you find the information in our website useful and enjoy finding out more about life at LGGS.

Mr Chris Beard,
Headteacher
