Altrincham Grammar School for Girls is an 11-18 wholly-selective Academy Grammar School responsible for its own admissions.

The Trafford Grammar School Consortium, comprising Altrincham Grammar School for Boys, Altrincham Grammar School for Girls, Sale Grammar School, Stretford Grammar School and Urmston Grammar School, are pleased to confirm our partnership with GL Assessment. 

GL Assessment will be the test provider for Year 7 entry testing from 2023 for 2024 entry and beyond. 

As specified in our admission policies, the content of the examination will remain as it previously has been, comprising mathematics, verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning.  Questions will be restricted to these skills and will be tested in a variety of ways; we do not however, have information regarding the exam content or question types.

GL is creating a bespoke paper for the Trafford Consortium so students sitting this examination will not sit the same examination at any other school. The types of questions however, will be similar to those provided in GL’s familiarisation material, and our own package will be available in the spring term. 

GL will be providing two test papers each of approximately one hour in length and each paper will test all three skills.

Further details regarding registration for the entrance exam will be available in the spring term, 2023, on the schools’ websites.
