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.
