Description of the school – Clitheroe Royal Grammar School

Clitheroe Royal Grammar school is a selective 11–18 school serving the community of the Ribble Valley and surrounding area. Applications for students to join the school in Year 7 and in the sixth form far exceed the number of places available. The percentage of students entitled to free school meals is low and there are very few students with learning difficulties and disabilities. When students start at the school their attainment is well above the average. Around two thirds of the sixth form students join the school at age 16 and there is a broader ability range in the sixth form. Around a tenth of students are from minority ethnic groups and the majority are studying in the sixth form. Attendance is well above average and instances of unauthorised absence are almost non existent. The school was awarded specialist language status in September 2006.
