Consultation on the revision of the School’s Admission Policy for entry in 2020
Back to article list

7th November 2018

Wednesday 7th November – Tuesday 18th December, 3.30pm


We would like to hear your views on:

  • A proposed change to the qualifying score for applicants who are in receipt of Pupil Premium funding (section 1.6 of the proposed policy);


Altrincham Grammar School for Girls’ current oversubscription criteria already places Pupil Premium students as second and we continue to attract a number of students meeting this criteria, reflecting the positive access arrangements that already exist. However, Governors have resolved to keep admissions under review and are resolute in their ambition to ensure that the demographic and socio-economic makeup of the school that makes AGGS such a unique place to study and learn does not change.  We are therefore proposing to change the qualifying score for applicants who are in receipt of Pupil Premium to 324.


Where can you access the full policy:

The draft admission policy for entry in 2020 is available on the school website at;
