Admission Timetable for Trafford Grammar School entry in September 2024

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.


The following five schools are known as the Trafford Grammar Schools CEM Consortium (TGSCC): Altrincham Grammar for Girls, Altrincham Grammar for Boys, Sale Grammar, Stretford Grammar, Urmston Grammar.


Children 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 five schools to sit the exam and state which schools to share the scores with. 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 its own admission policy.
