List of grammar schools in England


List of grammar schools in England

Most of the grammar schools in England were closed or converted to comprehensive schools in the 1960s and 1970s.A few local authorities resisted this move and retain a selective system similar to the earlier Tripartite System.There are also a number of isolated grammar schools, which admit the candidates who score highest on their entry tests.

The remaining 164 grammar schools in England are enumerated by Statutory Instrument. [ [http://www.opsi.gov.uk/si/si1998/19982219.htm The Education (Grammar School Designation) Order 1998] , Statutory Instrument 1998 No. 2219, UK Parliament.] [ [http://www.opsi.gov.uk/si/si1999/19992456.htm The Education (Grammar School Designation) (Amendment) Order 1999] , Statutory Instrument 1999 No. 2456, UK Parliament.] [ [http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200607/cmhansrd/cm070716/text/70716w0022.htm House of Commons Hansard, 16 July 2007: Columns 104W-107W] , UK Parliament Publications & Records.] They are listed here grouped by region (from north to south) and Local Education Authority.There are no remaining grammar schools in North East England.
