    After the last two years of lockdown restrictions Colchester Royal Grammar School (CRGS) is thrilled to welcome parents, carers and future students to the 11+ Open Evening on 28 June.  Named East Anglia State School of the Decade by The Sunday Times in 2021, CRGS is a selective day school for boys aged 11 – 18 years and it is co-educational in the Sixth Form.

    ‘Pupils say school is a safe and enjoyable place to be’ (Ofsted, Feb 2022) and central to the ethos of our school is our core values: Compassion, Respect, Generosity and Support.  Not only does CRGS focus on students attaining academic success but we also aim to promote students’ spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development.  There is a broad extracurricular timetable that includes sport, music, theatre, a programme of distinguished external speakers, field trips, visits to museums and galleries, and trips abroad.

    ‘Pupils feel listened to’ (Ofsted, Feb 2022) and the wide range of student-led, staff-supported clubs and societies all help to encourage and shape our equality, diversity and inclusion work, these include Afro-Caribbean Society, Christian Union, Asian Society, FemSoc and LGBTQ+ Society. The Student Support Hub, run by the Student Welfare Manager, offers a designated safe space where students can talk about any concerns and are offered support from the school counsellor, the school mental health nurse, and the school Chaplain.

    We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
