About Colchester Royal Grammar School

This is a smaller than average, selective boys’ school where girls are admitted to the thriving sixth form. There is a small boarding section for sixth form boys. The school is non-denominational but accords broadly with Christian values. The school draws from a very wide area and serves much of north east Essex. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is very low. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is above average, although the numbers that do not have English as their first language is below average. Attainment on entry is well above average, as Essex grammar schools select from the most able of the school population who choose to apply. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is low, as is the number with a statement of special educational need. The school holds a specialist accreditation for science.
