Bacup & Rawtenstall Grammar School – Entrance Exam Success!

In 2018 all of our pupils achieved scores well above the pass mark of 99.5 &
were all offered a place at this outstanding school.

The school’s high ranking in league tables & its status as a selective entry state school make BRGS vastly over-subscribed so competition for places is fierce. In 2013 Trinity Mirror’s ranking of state funded schools placed BRGS at 119th of 3,079 with a score of 76 out of a 100.

It was rated as a 5 star school for the following attributes:

What Our Customers Say

BBC 500 Words Short Story Competition 2017

In 2017 Meren reached the final of BBC’s 500 Words Story Writing Competition. She was invited to attend a star-studded award ceremony at The Tower of London hosted by Radio 2s Chris Evans.

The winners were revealed by celebrity narrators including Jenny Agutter, David Suchet (CBE), comedian John Bishop and Sir Derek Jacobi. The audience were serenaded by Niall Horan, Louisa Johnson & Olly Murrs and awards were presented by HRH Duchess of Cornwall. A truly amazing experience for any little girl!

Our pupils love attending & make excellent progress & new friends too!

‘Dear Helen, Georgie, Oli and I finished our last day of Year 11 at BRGS today and we wanted to say a huge thank you for your help getting us in!!

Georgie and I are best friends now which is weird looking back on our lessons with A Star Tuition.

I’m going to Holy Cross next year to do A levels in English Lit, Film, Art and History. Georgie and all my other friends are staying on at BRGS Sixth Form which made today so emotional! Thanks again for all your help.’ – Kate Roper, Year 11
