Welcome to Caistor Grammar School
Caistor Grammar School is a community where we work hard to enable our students to make the most of their ability, to be happy and to be fulfilled. We help our students gain an enviable academic education, to learn practical skills and to develop their power to reason. Learning, for us, goes beyond examination results. We promote learning to foster an understanding of the other aspects of life: social, moral, spiritual, aesthetic and physical.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like more information.

Caistor Grammar School Sixth Form provides a range of A levels that will enable students to progress on to virtually any course in higher education. With very strong pass rates over the recent years we hope that all students will fulfil their potential and go on to their first choice of higher education course.
Of course CGS Sixth Form is not only about work – ask any present or past student! We would like to think that our students enjoy their time with us taking the opportunity to participate in the wider life of the sixth form, developing independence and responsibility in the process.
ALL THAT WE ASK OF STUDENTS IS THAT THEY SHOW COMMITMENT IN THEIR CONTRIBUTION SO THAT THEIR TIME HERE IS PROFITABLE.
Sixth form life at CGS provides students with a number of opportunities to develop and improve as young adults.
Casterby House provides the Sixth form with its own common rooms, a kitchen, careers library and study rooms. There is an ongoing commitment to improving and adapting the facilities available.
If you believe you have something to offer, there is the Sixth Form Committee which organises a number of events throughout the year which culminate in the Sixth Form Ball in May. There is also a Section Committee which acts as a forum for the expression of ideas and suggestions.
In addition you may enjoy the challenge of being a prefect, carrying out general duties around the school. You can also as prefects assist form tutors on a day to day basis, or you can help in the library or volunteer in some subjects to help younger students experiencing learning difficulties. Also as House officials sixth formers play a major part in organising and preparing younger students for House sporting, music and drama events. There are also opportunities for mentoring both academic and pastoral.
On Wednesday afternoons there are a number of activities. There is a variety of sporting events including some fixtures. Recreational activities among other things include go-carting, paint balling and some outdoor pursuits. There is also the opportunity to gain work experience, to carry out voluntary work in the community or to take part in the Young Enterprise Scheme. Also there is the Performing Arts Leadership Award and the Community Sports Leadership Award. Activities are reviewed in response to suggestions and preferences.
In short throughout your time in CGS sixth form you will be encouraged to contribute as fully as possible to the life of the school and the wider community.
In the summer of 2017 a very impressive 72.9% of the passes were at the higher A*‐B grades (excluding General Studies).
