Lancaster Royal Grammar (LRGS) was founded between 1235–1256 and was rebuilt in 1852 on its current site. The school spreads across an upper and lower site. The upper site includes the Cricket pavilion and pitches with incredible views across Morecambe Bay to the Lakeland hills. The lower site comprises some of the most historic buildings including the Old School House; a Grade II listed building and includes all boarding facilities, sports hall, gymnasium and swimming Pool.
Lancaster, located in the north west of England is one of the countries heritage cities. Lancaster Castle, owned by Her Majesty the Queen, served as a prison for many years and in 1612 held the Pendle witch trials (the most famous and best recorded of the 17th century). The city has a seafaring past, and its port became one of the busiest in the UK; the fourth most important in the UK’s slave trade.
The city has retained many excellent examples of Georgian architecture in including Lancaster Castle, the Priory Church of St. Mary and the Edwardian Ashton Memorial. The city also boasts numerous museums, including Lancaster City Museum, Maritime Museum, the Cottage Museum, and Judges’ Lodgings Museum.
PROGRAMME OF ACTIVITIES
Our activities help to build children’s self-confidence, fuelling their motivation to succeed in life. We develop the soft skills and competencies needed to succeed by equipping children with a holistic understanding of themselves and others, as they start to make important decisions about their future.
“We support children in growing and evolving by engaging and empowering them, taking their skills to the next level, ready for the future.”
EDUCATIONAL & CULTURAL TRIPS
We spark children’s curiosity about things past, present & future, visiting local museums, discovery centres, historical & contemporary sites.
We are keen to engage children outside the classroom by showcasing the beautiful towns, museums and discovery centres close by. We always research our trips thoroughly; opening children’s eyes to the contributions each region has made to the United Kingdom.
We don’t forget that it’s the summer holidays so we offer lots of fun, games and trips out where the children choose what the’d like to do.
We make sure that there’s plenty of pure fun activities too. If we’re heading to the cinema we give children a choice of films to ensure we cater for everyone. We actively engage children in our choice of activities, giving them plenty of opportunity to put in to practice new skills learned. This is just one of the ways we empower children during their stay.
