Northern Grammar Schools Working Together

Grammar schools in Lancashire and Yorkshire have agreed to collaborate and share best practice through the formation of the Northern Grammar Schools’ Alliance (NGSA).

The NGSA is a network of excellence for selective schools to share expertise and develop new opportunities for staff and pupils.

The NGSA is not a new school structure or change in the status of any of those schools. It is a collaborative network of schools that serve a wide geographical area, and includes maintained schools, single academies and schools in multi-academy trusts.

Its’ schools share a core ethos of academic excellence, pastoral care and rich extra-curricular opportunity for pupils. The NGSA will help them to build further on all these strengths.

It includes the following schools:

  • Bacup & Rawtenstall Grammar School
  • Clitheroe Royal Grammar School
  • The Crossley Heath School
  • Ermysted’s Grammar School
  • Heckmondwike Grammar School
  • Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School
  • Lancaster Royal Grammar School
  • North Halifax Grammar School
  • Ripon Grammar School
  • Skipton Girls’ High School
