Leicester Grammar Junior School is a selective, co-educational independent day school of just over 400 pupils founded in 1992 for pupils aged 3-11; it is today larger than at any time in its history. It is highly regarded across Leicestershire and children are drawn from a wide catchment area.
About the school
The school has built up a strong reputation for delivering an excellent academic education, whilst developing the all-round talents of the children in a warm and nurturing environment. The vast majority of our pupils progress to Leicester Grammar School, and this provides them with a seamless transition in their education to a leading senior school, named Sunday Times East Midlands Independent Secondary School of the Year 2020. Underpinning these academic successes is a caring community based on a Christian ethos that offers an extensive co-curricular programme, including strong provision for music, sport and drama. The Senior and Junior Schools were inspected in November 2019 and achieved the highest grading (‘Excellent’) in both categories (Pupils’ Achievements and Pupils’ Personal Development).
