Carre’s Grammar School has been recognised by Ofsted as a very good school with outstanding features. We have 800 students on roll, being boys only in Years 7 to 11 and co-educational in the Sixth Form.

The selective nature of our school means that we accept students who are in the top 25% of the ability range.

The school has long been synonymous with excellence and the school’s reputation for providing a first rate all-round education for local students has been strengthened even further over recent years. Our academic results speak for themselves while our achievements in Sport, Music and other activities are outstanding. We have been recognised as one of the top schools in the country based on our performance in the last few academic years, and regularly have students accepted for Oxbridge.

In September 2015 we formed the Robert Carre Trust and were joined by Kesteven and Sleaford High School, the local girls’ grammar school.

The friendly, cheerful atmosphere of the school helps our students enjoy learning and, as they grow into young men and women, we enable them to take increasing responsibility for themselves and for others around them.
