How To Apply

Skegness Grammar School will admit pupils at 11+ who are in the top 25% of the ability range in all the areas of Lincolnshire which serve grammar schools. 

The school is a member of the Lincolnshire Consortium of Grammar Schools (LCGS), this consortium was created to coordinate testing arrangments across the County. 

There are 14 schools within this consortium and all apply their selection tests and procedures (and appeals procedures) in order to ascertain those pupils whose ability places them in the top 25% of the ability range described above. Any change to this procedure or to the means by which the school assesses the level of applicants’ ability will be published in the prospectus prior to the next invitation for applications. Where a parent chooses to apply to the school under the county preference scheme, that choice will be considered as an equal preference.


As an academy within the David Ross Education Trust, we still operate under the Local Authority's admissions scheme.


Transfer from Primary Schools to Year 7 are managed by Lincolnshire County Council. The County Council website also provides options for completing on-line admissions forms for both normal and mid-year admissions. For more information visit:
