This is a list of the 164 state-funded fully selective schools (grammar schools) in England, as enumerated by Statutory Instrument. This list does not include former direct grant grammar schools which elected to remain independent, often retaining the title "grammar school". For such schools see the list of direct grant grammar schools.
Under the Tripartite System of secondary education in England between the 1940s and 1960s, approximately a quarter of children were selected by the eleven plus exam for entry to grammar schools, either "maintained" grammar schools fully funded by the state or direct grant grammar schools. Most of the maintained grammar schools were closed or converted to comprehensive schools in the 1960s and 1970s, though a few local authorities resisted this move and retained a selective system. There are also a number of isolated grammar schools, which admit the candidates who score highest on their entry tests.
The remaining 164 English state grammar schools are listed here grouped by region (from north to south) and Local Education Authority. There are no remaining state grammar schools in North East England. The gender indicated is that of the main school (ages 11–16). Several single-sex schools have sixth forms that also admit a small number of students of the opposite gender.

“We saw the machinery where murderers are now executed. Seven have been executed. The plan is better than the old one. It is quietly done. Only a few, at the most about thirty or forty, can witness [an execution]. It excites nobody outside of the list permitted to attend. I think the time for capital punishment has passed. I would abolish it. But while it lasts this is the best mode.”
—Rutherford Birchard Hayes (18221893)
