This inspection rating relates to a predecessor school. When a school, converts to an academy, is taken over or closes and reopens as a new school a formal link is created between the new school and the old school, by the Department for Education. Where the new school has not yet been inspected, we show the inspection history of the predecessor school, as we believe it still has significance.

Description of the school

Altrincham Grammar School for Girls is a larger than average selective school with a relatively large sixth form. Students who meet the academic standards set for admission are allocated places on the basis of living nearest to the school. It is a Specialist Language college and is also a Specialist Training school. The proportion of students eligible for free school meals is very low and the school has very few students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities. Around one in five students come from a range of minority ethnic groups and very small numbers do not speak English as their first language.
