The Schools Admissions Code, that came into effect in 2012, stated that by law, schools must take all reasonable steps to inform parents of the outcome of tests before the closing deadline for the Common Application form (CAF) on October 31st.
From 2016, the following four schools will be known as the Trafford Grammar Schools CEM Consortium (TGSCC): Altrincham Grammar for Girls, Sale Grammar, Stretford Grammar, Urmston Grammar. Children can sit only one test. Parents can request the raw scores be shared between the schools. Scores cannot be shared between the schools after the standardisation process. Parents have to apply to one of the four schools to sit the exam and state which schools to share the scores with. Only girls can sit the test at Altrincham Grammar School. It is possible for a child to pass the test for one school and not for another; this is because the raw scores are being compared to a different cohort of children. Each school has it’s own admission policy.
