There are five schools in the Lancashire and Cumbria region, four grammar schools in Lancashire and one in Cumbria. Year 7 places to Lancashire and Cumbria grammar schools are allocated based on student performance in the eleven plus entrance examination, which takes place in September.

Each of the schools organises an open event during the academic year to give students and parents the opportunity to meet staff members and find out more about the admissions process before applying for a place.

The Lancashire grammar schools comply with the admission criteria as set out by the Lancashire Coordinated Scheme for secondary schools. Those applying for a place at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Cumbria should refer to Cumbria County Council.
