Applications to Urmston Grammar, Altrincham Grammar School for Girls, Sale Grammar School and Stretford Grammar School.

These four Trafford Grammar Schools are known as the Trafford Grammar Schools CEM Consortium (TGSCC).

Urmston Grammar, Altrincham Grammar School for Girls, Sale Grammar School and Stretford Grammar School are using the same entrance test and consequently your child can only sit one test.  However, parents can request that the raw score is shared between all four schools for inclusion in their standardisation.  Parents can therefore choose to receive results for all four schools.  Please read the registration form carefully and tick the appropriate statement to request that the scores are shared.  Scores cannot be retrospectively shared between the schools after the standardisation process has taken place.
