Intake distances - 4.4 of Admissions Policy

The request was successful.

Dear Altrincham Grammar School for Girls,

Thank you for publishing on your website the furthest distance for offers made between the 2016 and 2020. However, I assume these distances are for all girls and therefore cover Special Educational Needs, Looked After children, those in receipt of pupil premium and those with siblings already at the school? Would it be possible to see the same information on distances but for girls that are not in one of the prioritised cohorts above. I am specifically referring to girls that achieve the intake and qualify under paragraph 4.4 of your admissions policy:

“4.4 Applicants residing within the school’s catchment area. Where the number of applicants qualifying for admission under this category exceeds the number of places available, then priority shall be given to those applicants residing closer to the school”

Thank you in advance,
Mr Gill

I refer to your email dated 6 April 2021.

 

With regard to the information published on the website detailing the
furthest distance for offers made, this does not include offers made in
Categories 1,2,3,5 and 6.  The distances are taken from students who were
in either Category 4 (within catchment) or Category 7 (out of catchment). 
For example, for entry in 2019, we offered up to 8.478 miles in Category 7
and in 2020, we offered up to 6.788 miles in Category 4.

 

Regards
