What says..

The children we met were all very welcoming, friendly and engaging, more than happy to chat. ‘Well rounded individuals, confident but not arrogant, such a good reflection on the school,’ said a parent. ‘I chose the school because it is forward looking, modern and multi-cultural, which reflects our society.’

What the school says...

Welcome to our school. I extend a very warm welcome to you to come and visit Leicester Grammar School. I believe that when you do you will experience an atmosphere where the individual can develop his or her talents to the full. Here, there is collective pride in our achievements, with the first priority being to develop the individuals academic potential. Opportunities in music, drama and sport are given prominence because we believe that, through involvement in a wide range of extra-curricular activities, the individual personality can grow and our pupils will then be able to leave us with the confidence that they can meet the challenges of the modern world.

The entrance examinations for Leicester Grammar School consist of: ages 10-14 Verbal Reasoning, English and Maths; post 16 - Minimum of 2 A grades, 4B grades and an interview.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Head

Since 2001, Christopher King (50s). Read geography at Durham, returning to do a masters 18 years later. Started work at Wessex Water Authority as a planner. Very ambitious, realised would not get far in water so turned to teaching. Rose through the ranks via Rendcomb College and Kimbolton and was head at Leicester within 12 years. Chair of the HMC in 2015, unusual post for head of a relatively new school. A dedicated and popular head, he can be found on the touchline at most fixtures and is always present at parents’ evenings and concerts. Teaches year 7s on rotation and knows all the children by name. ‘I wouldn’t want the school to be any bigger as I know every child and write reports for each one. That could change if numbers increased and...
