If you are in Lancaster itself it should be fine
- as to whether it is tough to get in, if you are in catchment then it is no tougher than any other GS. They tend to take a proportion of those taking the exam - both Lancaster schools have GCSE / A level results similar to the Skipton schools and they take 28% of the catchment population.
Some GS take down to 15% but don't necessarily do much better in results
. It depends really whether you feel your DD comes into that sort of section of the kids around her - often difficult to tell...... can you have a acht with her current teachers and see what they say?
edit - have you had a look at this helpful booklet??http://www.lggs.org.uk/Assets/Admission ... -entry.pdf
some sample papers and target scores to aim at
